On the Subject of Forget Us Not
Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. -Orwell, 1984
- This module consists of a red background with a number pad from 0 to 9 and an LCD Screen along its bottom. If there is a 2nd LCD Screen above the ‘0’ key, then you are looking at a different module.
- This module cannot be solved until every other module on the bomb (except potential other “Forget Us Not”s) have been solved. Typing any of the keys before so will result in a strike.
- Once a module has been solved, a number between 1 and the number of modules on the bomb minus the number of “Forget Us Not” modules will appear on the bottom LCD Screen. This is the stage number for the next solved module. Using the next module that is solved, find the 3 digit number you’ll be using for that stage then manipulate it using the following rules to arrive at your 1 digit answer for that round:
- Take the number you get and the number of batteries and you will manipulate the individual digits in operations to each other using these rules. From now on The 3 digits will be separated with the number in the hundreds place being called A, the number in the tens place being called B, and the ones place’s digit being called C.
- Step 1: Next follow 1 of the following steps based on your serial number:
- If your serial number has 4 letters and 2 numbers: subtract the number of batteries from A. If the number is negative after this, drop the negative sign.
- If your serial number has 3 letters and 3 numbers: subtract the number of batteries from B. If the number is negative after this, drop the negative sign.
- If your serial number has 2 letters and 4 numbers: subtract the number of batteries from C. If the number is negative after this, drop the negative sign.
- Otherwise, Use the first condition.
- Step 2: Then take the 2 numbers you didn’t manipulate from the 3 in Step 1 and subtract them from each other, dropping the negative sign if the number goes negative.
- Add your result from Step 1 to your result in Step 2, taking only the least significant digit if the result is above 9.
