This answers most of Bluedrip's questions, but something crucial still remains in the air:



EDIT: Less than 24 hours since this strip's release and you've already figured out what's going on! Incredible. I haven't had this much participation since #2221.

EDIT 2: Some users have asked if it is a mistake that the pixel at (642, 58) is pure blue. It was at first, but then I started designing around it.

EDIT 3: Apparently I must reiterate: you cannot enter all of pi, not even using the phony mathematics used as a punchline in several Percy the Cat strips. Perhaps there is another meaning to "pi"?

EDIT 4: where.gif does not factor into any of this, although I will say at least one section in this puzzle was designed by the folks who originally had to solve it.

EDIT 5: You do not have to kill Greg or steal any of his possessions. When you find what you need in the house, just take a photo of it and leave.

EDIT 6: Greg apparently squandered his savings on a security system, so it's impossible to obtain access to part5.php "the intended way" any more. I'll just post the correct orientation of the sundials here:

EDIT 7: I must warn all of you that there is one red herring you are still trying to investigate further. You probably know what it is now. But remember: even red herrings can be useful here at Postcard.

EDIT 8: Seems like I'll have to wrap up here! The end is very near. Just be careful with how you use the imported sugar - I only had enough to send it to the first 20 players who got here, so if all 20 of you dump it out or lose it, it's game over for everyone.

EDIT 9: Congratulations to BOB POSTCARDFANS.NET for being the first person to answer Bluedrip's final question! Commentary on a Postcard, a print version and commentary on the first 3000 strips, is now available in the online Postcard store and (hopefully) bookstores near you. BOB himself receives a gold-encrusted copy that's probably more practical to sell than it is to read. I'll announce the runner-up prizes in just a short while.

EDIT 10: beerbogganer, jonesCA, and the artist of this strip have each received their own box of toothpicks autographed by yours truly. (And no, I do not keep a toilet plunger behind my bookcase - har de har har.)
