this quiestion is answered later in the forum. you have to finish the whole word correctly before ti turns green. something about necklace, ice, port. try that.

I decoded the messsage w/o a problem but am now stuck.

hint tells me to use the pen on the requisition form, but when I try I'm told not to write on this. There is nothing to do in any of the other rooms.

Help please! Thanks

Thanks, realtuff, that helped!

It took me forever to see the tiny [x] a the top right corner to shut the form after solving the words.

Eesh.

Okay, I've repaired the mail system, I have the tube, and I have the requisition form with the check mark on it. I'm thinking I should somehow mail the requisition form, but I can't put it and the mail tube together. Am I missing something, or am I completely on the wrong track? The hint makes it look like I should mail something, but I can't go from here. How frustrating!

Thanks!

Not sure I'm clear on what you mean by having to decode the whole word, but that was not the case for me, I solved letter by letter. I don't remember if the letters turned green when you found the right one, I don't think so, but they will fill in across the puzzle and you can figure from there, you don't need to complete one word then move on to the next, is what I mean. But I may be misunderstanding what you mean?

I know you have to click in the correct order: either the tube onto the form or the form onto the tube, or it won't work. This one frustrated me, because I had tried to put tube and form together and it hadn't worked, but it was because I clicked in the wrong order. If you have the form in the tube, you send it from the office where the safety deposit boxes are, if you have repaired the system, by clicking the tube onto the folded out shoot thing and pulling a lever I believe?.
