Here's the first puzzle of this new format. Everything you need is in the picture, don't waste your time looking for hidden metadata or anything. 

Good luck!

Just putting my thoughts out there, but my first thought was the direction the doge is facing indicates which hand would type the letter on a QWERTY keyboard, if typing properly.  That said, I am not sure what to do with the odd ones out.

@Sir_Bee - You might be overthinking it.

When I was making the puzzle, I was like "This is easy, someone will get this in 2 minutes" but, on reflection, this one might stand for a little while.

Overthinking is what I do best :)  Going to let it stew in the back of my mind while at work, and see what else I can come up with.

Zonday

 

I have no idea how you got that :blink: but no, that's not the correct answer.

I translated it to morse. The question was what day did Muttnik disintegrate? And that was Nov 3 1957. The day was a Zonday.

Wait, It is monday!

My mistake was that I though disintegrate ment passing away, after reading the wiki It says that Over five months later, after 2,570 orbits, Sputnik 2—including Laika's remains—disintegrated during re-entry on April 14, 1958. That was a Monday!

You are so, desperately close. Read the question again.

DING DING DING!

Winner! I was thinking of the date, rather than the day. By coincidence, both were a Monday, but as you gave me the right date too in the end, you get it!

@Danny_Johansen I assume you want the Premium membership for yourself mate?

Yes and a nice puzzle,  I enjoyed solving it.

Thanks for the Premium.

@StrickenBiged Just out of curiosity, what was the logic behind making a left face a "." and a right face a "_"?  If I were trying to guess, I would have instinctively gone the other way with "L"eft representing "long".

@Danny_Johansen Congratulations on solving it :)

@Sir_Bee No logic at all. Just picked one. Part of code breaking is trial and error. If you guessed wrong the first time, then you'd have had to try it the other way around when it would have worked.

Congrats @Danny_Johansen!!

I like the puzzle! Wish I hadn't scarfed down two pounds of pasta an hour ago and checked the site instead. Yet another thing I missed out on because I was stuffing my face with shameful carbs. :(

@DaivRules I obviously made it too easy! I'll do better next time, and you can have another go. 

Don't feel too bad though, you won the last one!

I'm going to have to start layering these things so that they take longer.

Oh, I understand that I am not suggesting I was even close enough to get to that stage.  I was only asking because I was curious if there was an underlying logic that I just wasn't thinking of.

If you're interested in the logic behind that: fellow Dutchman Danny meant to say "zondag", which is Dutch for "Sunday", but they got mixed up somehow :lol: .

This is correct, trying to quickly say the answer made me mix them up. It seems that my posts with a single word are still full of spelling errors.

Puzzle 2 is a Christmas special!

 

If you crack this one, the prize is a Lifetime Premium Membership to PSNProfiles.com! Holly hell! I must be mad.

 

Because of the special nature of the prize, Rule 4 will be varied so that those currently on an annual Premium membership can hold their prize over until their current membership expires and they need to renew.

 

With that said, here is your puzzle:

Good luck!

 

(Sorry about the issues with embedding there! Still getting used to the site update. Enjoy!)
