bad parameters
 
hi. Love cryptogramming but ... Lately I'm getting a lot of 'bad parameter' notices when I try to upload. It's driving me daft. Why do I keep getting it? And is it affecting my recorded score?

I haven't seen this problem on my device since the early test versions.. do you mind working with us to try and debug this?

The bad parameter error occurs when there is missing data in the post information that client uploads. During the upload, the client advertises how many results it is uploading, and then the data for all of the results. If something is missing, the bad parameter warning occurs.

My first thought is that this is related to the quantity of puzzles you are uploading at once. So one question is: does this error happen when you upload a lot of puzzles at a time? Or does it happen even if you are uploading just one finished puzzle?

Second, what is the frequency? Say, one in two uploads cause the problem, or one in ten? All of them?

The best way to see if it is affecting your score is to check your scorecard before and after the upload. If you get the error, see if it has incremented your number-of-games-played counter.

Regards,
Jason

I wonder - is there ever going to be more expansive sorts of add-ons/applications? For example, will you offer software that can be used on the LG Dare?
I don't have an iPhone, but I love playing cryptograms online or offline...

Problem with a cryptogram
 
I'm sorry but I could not find any link or heading to start a new thread ... so I hope putting this here will get a response.

I was trying to solve a Vladamir Lenin quote ... and was down to the last missing letter and it read ... without that letter:

Give me your _ears to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.

Letters left to fill in the blank above were: FJKQZ ....
So the only letter that makes _ears into a real word is Fears ... which
when entered is not the correct solution.

Is there an error in this quote?

another possible error in a cryptogram ???
 
I was solving a quote by Malcom X ... and got all but one letter.
It read without that letter:

My Alma Mater has books, a good library. I could spend the rest of my life _ust satisfying my curiosity.

The remaining letters were: JQVWXZ

The only one of these that makes _ust into a real word is Just ...
but that doesn't check out as correct.

Is this another error????

Not my night ... I'm giving up and going to be.
Will check back tomorrow.

There's no error in the application.. your solution is incorrect. Just because the words fit with the ciphertext doesn't mean it's correct.. there are alternate solutions :) (BTW I've verified the correct solution in the database)

Was this done in the iPhone client? I searched the database that feeds the iPhone and couldn't find anything resembling this quote :(

That being said, I was able to verify that your solution is also incorrect. A google search turns this up:

http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23320/

"My alma mater was books, a good library. I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity."

... so "was" instead of "has"?

Thanks ... that helped a lot ... especially since I seemed to be beating my head against the wrong brick letters!

Sometimes I reset the whole thing and in re-doing it discover I'm trying to change the wrong word ... and sometimes ... not even that helps.

silveryaspen 06-04-2009 07:41 PM

Aha ... this morning i realize fears is right and the word teach should be reach. Why something eludes us one day and not the next ... makes me wonder if parts of our brains take rests some days!
