All we need is a module for tabbed pages. I think it would be relatively easy to create. Notice that developer’s module lists your modules (except Google’s). If somebody can figure out a way to take that list and organize it into rendered tabs. Volunteers?

It was only a matter of time before a programmer writes code to solve the puzzle. I found a site that wrote code in TCL and a link to code written in PERL. I looked through the code. Very nicely done!
Keep up the good work.
Lots of us enjoyed the Da Vinci Code Quest puzzles and we can only hope to get the quality/standard of puzzles that mimic those of the Da Vinci Quest puzzles.
All that said, what do you all think?
Should it be released on a daily basis?
Should there be a specific time for the releases?
Should it be released on weekends?
Should there be a goal/incentive/prize for solving the puzzles?
Should puzzles make use of Google services?
Should I have more “Should” questions?
Leave some comments on “What should Google do to make this challenge exciting?”. If anyone has any info/tips on what is going to happen with the challenge, send me an email.
Based on this statement on the Google Module,
While we're still getting some fancier stuff ready behind the scenes
We can only assume that the puzzle project is going through a fancy makeover. Currently, there are 2 ways (or URLs) to add the module.
One using the old Da Vinci Code module:
And this module:
Which ultimately links to this web site that is hosting the module.
Stay tuned for more exciting things to come!

For all of you who do not have a Google Personalized Homepage, click on the add to Google link below. If you have a Google Personalized Homepage, add the module by clicking the link below.
Here is the Google Puzzle Challenge (GPC) number 1.
Using the numbers 3, 3, 8, 8 (in any order), make a mathematical expression that equals 24. You can use only addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (and parentheses), but in any order you wish. Note that you have to use all four numbers; otherwise 3 times 8 would be valid -- and that wouldn't be much of a puzzle, would it?
