    Password Protected

    I keep my collection of Mad Magazines in a safe which requires me to input a 10 digit code to unlock it. Unfortunately, for a reason I have forgotten, I have forgottten the password. However, in a rare moment of forward thinking, I jotted down a hint sheet in case of just such an eventuality. All I need now is a mathematically-minded person to work it all out!

    All digits from 0 to 9 are used exactly once.
    No digit is the same as the position which it occupies in the sequence.
    The sum of the 5th and 10th digits is a square number other than 9.
    The sum of the 9th and 10th digits is a cube.
    The 2nd digit is an even number.
    Zero is in the 3rd position.
    The sum of the 4th, 6th and 8th digits is a single digit number.
    The sum of the 2nd and 5th digits is a triangle number.
    Number 8 is 2 spaces away from the number 9 (one in between).
    The number 3 is next to the 9 but not the zero.

    Help! I need an Alf fix.

    Oh no! The hinges of the safe have seized up. Have you got any oil? <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    That's done the trick. I've used it on my joints too and now I feel like a well-Kroiled machine.

    Don't stress Rob. Use the universal code:

    Re: Password Protected

    That would open the safe, but would there be any Mad Magazines left intact?

    It would depend on your skill with the stuff:

    Safecracker level or "Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid" type of level.
