How to Solve Any Puzzle in Less Than 47 Minutes

EDITED (10 Jan 2015) to fix broken video and photo embed links.

For those who couldn't attend, here's a recording of the puzzle hunt talk I gave at Ignite Portland 7 on November 19, 2009!

The talk includes a walk-through of one Clue from the MegaHard Game (2000), and I love that several people in the audience applauded for the "a-ha" moment and the solution at the end. That's what it's all about, folks.

It's difficult to see the complete slides in those videos, so if you want to solve the embedded puzzle, you should look at these still images:

As noted, tweet @teamsnout if you figure it out. First person to post the correct solution wins verifiable, time-stamped bragging rights. :)

Thanks to all the Ignite Portland staff, volunteers, speakers, and attendees for contributing to a great event, and to Jeff Stribling of MegaHard GC for providing a copy of the Clue for me to photograph.
