Does it count as little help if I didn't talk about it to anyone? The only help I used I found off forum posts and I didn't get any PMs about it (seems most of the useful information about this riddle was sent via PMs
Anyway, great riddle, however it takes a lot of time to do even if u know how to do it - would've been way better if the puzzle had been interactive and you could move stuff in the grid with a click of the mouse.
First time I actually started moving things around I ended up with 1 more letter than was necessary. Also there was quite a bit of information that seemed like it might have been important but was completely unnecessary - it made me delay to move stuff around until I finally decided that I wouldn't understand it and tried ignoring it to see what would happen...and it led me to the right answer!!!
