i don't see how that helps..

i would like to point out that i've solved it with using.... nothing at all, besides myself; no instruments, no stick, no nothing .. and i do not remove wine from the barrel.

It may interest you to know this "trick" does not work if the barrel has a non-symmetrical shape. Hope that helps. i can't say any more

Maybe you should explain that a little more clearly. Folding a mental picture in half in your mind doesn't help you solve the problem.  :P

You're not exactly helping either.  <_<

I'm starting to think maybe Eddy should just post his answer.

Hmm, I thought Eddy was supposed to have posted his picture. Well, I'll give you a hint. He's hosted it somewhere on his website.  :P

He basically emailed me a pic of his solution. Which was correct. I noticed from the URL that it was hosted somewhere on his website, but I don't remember it off hand.

I also heard Sirbomber suggested some idea that was somewhat close. But I don't see it posted, so I'm assuming it was said on IRC.

Yes fine, be picky.

I guess I should just post the link to the pic or something. Or maybe wait for Eddy to do it. (It's a picture of a "barrel", guess the extension on most pictures, and he hosted it himself).  :whistle:

does it have an IP log?  If it does, match it up to the person that way

yes it has, but i don't know who that would be..  i don't have logs of IP's & people. for what it's worth: the ip translates to *.cg.shawcable.net

it does give a number - i just removed it, since it's only the ISP that is important.
anyway .. no replies today; so here's the picture (if someone STILL doesnt see it now <_<)

you can try this with a glass filled halfway with ... whatever you can find

I know how you can do it with a can of soda, see if it will balance.  If it balances, less than half full
