"What number goes in the blank? (Hint: It's not 84!) [Penny's "GOT IT !!!!!!!!!" solution is]...not the solution I had intended, but you have it on the right track. 3=R is there twice because it appears in the original message twice. Here's another hint: The letters to numbers isn't A=1, B=2; [then "GOT IT!!!!!!!!!! was NOT on the right track]; in fact, less than 10 letters (by my thoughts) can be translated this way. I said there was less than 10, because in my opinion, 2 could never appear in a problem like this, and 7 and 9 probably would either [you meant, wouldn't either?] unless you think creatively. :) One of my final hints is a philosophical one. 'Equality isn't as important as you think.' Also, this does have something to do with computers, but rather what you would do while using them. Nobody's really gotten close enough in the comments I read."

Well, this is certainly one of the toughest flooble puzzles. It's right up there with the David Lynch film "Mulholland Dr."
