No, official wife from KL.  I spent 1 year there.
 
For anyone who wonders:
KL = Kuala Lumpur, capital of Malaysia,
Ipoh is another Malaysian city.

Allo allo,
 
By the looks of it no one has posted to this section for a while, and from quick glance I seem to be the only University drop out ;P
 
Never the less these puzzles are fun, cheers for a good site

Don't sweat it, some of my coolest friends are university's drop out. In fact, I nearly became one.  Grin

Hello
I am Raghavan. I am 29 and will be 30 next wednesday Smiley. I did my MS from Clemson and I am currently working on image processing algorithms which relies heavily on mathematics.  
 
I was hooked to mathematics during my undergraduate days and won a few mathematics olympiads during that time. These sets of puzzles are awesome and I look forward to solving more in the near future

Most of the answers are on this forum, somewhere. There's not a compiled list of answers though.

Sorry Enigma, I am also in Maths and computers.
 
I live in Geneva, Switzerland.   I am male and 40+.  Am I the oldest?  Actually I showed this site to a retired man from India, so probably not.
 
I studied Maths and Computer science in Geneva.  Both for fun.  Of course I ended up doing programming.  My dream job would have been "omniheurist", a problem-solver, one who is asked to solve problems, like how to organize a partking to maximize the number of places or how to design a 6-way highway interchange.  But I ended up doing the usual business management programs and never used much maths.
 
I think I was given the URL to this site from another riddle hobbyist on another forum.  Anyway, since then I come here daily.  I tend to give my opinion on all problems, even if they have been solved already.

hi all,
 I saw this website recently through search engine abt a month ago. This is THE BEST site for riddles, and with so many really smart people it is even lively. I guess no other forum has so many clever people as members who interact continuously. I am really addicted to riddles by this.
 
     Cheers to Mr.william wu and moderators.

I classify myself as a pedestrian caught in the cross fire of puzzles, riddles, enigmas. I do not have an analytically trained mind. It is the creation of the problems that fascinate and enthral me. Being endowed with a good memory with excellent recall on detail I should be able to keep up with you younger folk. Alas I cannot but I will keep trying. Thank you kindly and peace be with you.

Hi all.  I found this site a few years ago (google) after a college friend challenged me with a great riddle that, once solved, only left me looking for more.  At the time my favorite courses had been along the lines of number theory, cryptography, chaos theory, and combinatorics, and it was great to find a site that had such a large collection of math and logic puzzles with an insightful and intelligent community to back it up.  The website and forum quickly became a catalyst for my growing interest in recreational mathematics.
 
Since my first visit to the site, I graduated from University of Maryland with a BS in Mathematics and BA in Economics.  I'm now 23 and working as an analyst (gotta love ambiguous job titles), but I've recently been considering going back for a graduate degree in math.
 
Like many have said before, this is by far the best riddle site out there, and big thanks to William, the moderators, and frequent posters who keep this going.
 
Cheers.

Hi, I´m brazilian, engineer, 58-years old, and my passions are math and logic (besides my 3 sons, that obviously, comes first). I´m not sure, but I think I found this site "googling", and as I am a regular contributor to another site (an English one), I intend to participate of this too. By now, I have no wink to identify me, but I´ll look for one. Cheers to all.

Hi I'm 27, female, Australian and a Security Officer.
I found this place through a stumble search for logic and have been tearing my hair out ever since.
I have no uni qualifications at all and I'm blonde so....
My mother was a huge fan of cyrptic crosswords and rubic puzzles so we all grew up just playing around with them.
9 times out of 10 I will get an answer that makes no sense at all but I dont mind as I enjoy the challenge.
 
I'm still feeling my way around so I think thats it for now.
 
Pleased to 'meet' you all Wink

Hey I'm 17 yr old High School student from Western Australia. I found this site when I typed riddles into google (I was researching riddles that I could use in my Dungeons and Dragons Campaign). I like Biology and therefore riddles that incorporate it. I also like logic puzzles and those that require lateral thinking because I want to "think outside the box" and increase my wisdom.

Hello
 
My name is Jim.  I'm a 20 year old senior in Chemical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.
 
I've always loved riddles, and up to this point, my only real place to get new riddles has been from my fraternity brothers.  (Yes, my fraternity has a higher proportion of people who do this kind of riddle than who drink)  I discovered this site on google during my internship at a large corporation to whom I leased my soul for the summer.
 
I've solved over half the puzzles, but still maintain my noob status on the forums, as most of the puzzles have been hashed out long before I discovered the site.

Maji,
 
You can find the answer in the original thread.
 
I do believe, however, that proper netiquette requires you to ask for William's permission prior to "borrowing" his riddles.
