p. Though it could be "nu", and the p is debatable. :)

Thanx, took a moment.

Actually its n & p that alternate not n & u, whi I think is sufficient to keep p on the list.

Ah, OK. I just seem to remember otherwise.

Here's a couple for you:
1) mvemjsun
2) rkbqkbk
3) kpcofg

Correct.

1) p, though some may debate it. And it can also be asked nu. :)
2) n. Though, i prefer h to k. Especially with a y on the end.
3)

Still have to think about number 3. Though, it seems similar to number nine above.
• #### Re:Fun fun... (Score:1)

1) Correct
2) I don't think so... Or atleast not what I was thinking of. The answer would be 'r' for my combination.
3) I'll give you time.

At some point, you should post the pattern sources above.

Doh! I did mean r for number 2. Silly fingers.

You could have preped me though with seven ps. :)

Sure, but not just yet.

3) is s

Yepp.

8. d (although s or g could be used as a descriptor)

Very good.

Nine should be easy. Seven and four harder.
• #### Re:Heh, update helped. :) (Score:2)

I understand what 9 is. But I don't know the item after 'g' -- and I'm not sure why the 'f' is there, and not near the 'o' -- especially since of all of them, the o should have that designation.

As for the next item, I want to say 'ig', or 'k' or 'pk'

And 4 looks like something that descended from Greek prefixes -- I vote for either an 'e' or an 'n', although 'pltq' isn't clear, I'd expect dmtt...am I close?
• #### Re:Heh, update helped. :) (Score:2)

It's n. So, you're in the correct area, but i'm on a different point. Though, i admit, pl, is not entirely conventional, but i do believe it to be correct. tq is definitely correct. As for 9, if you know what it is, a simple search ought to give you the answer.
• #### Re:Heh, update helped. :) (Score:2)

Is 9 p? Or b?

No. Twenty-four more to go. :)

Well, now I'm lost entirely, so I'm just gonna wait until you give out the answer, and then I'll explain my reasoning.

Excellent!

I must admit, i still haven't figured out what "kpcofg" is. Hmm..
