Level 7. Dont ask! I'm stuck :( see the picture above.
Clue: Tried, subtracting red ones from the black ones, addition, 'bookkeeping' etc etc.
Answer: Know, and let me know!


Got the answer already :); rotate the image upside down, subtract red ones from the black ones; you get 5537. Rotate back the number akin to the original numbers of the image, it'd give you LESS (5537) - Turn the "less" upside down to see 5537!

Level 8.
(ruby - ru) + (foxpro - po - fox) + (python - p - t - (hay - a)) + s + (delphi - phi - el) + (java - va - j) + (ugg + h - g) + te + r + ?

Combining this gives: by r on s d a uh te r
