    OB Joe's Problem!

    Jezza Bear is in a bad mood again, puzzles to solve, puzzles to solve! OB Joe has been winding him up during his Christmas visit, what with this and what with that. <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>

    So to keep him quiet Jezza Bear decided to create a code and ask OB Joe to answer it. Here was Jezza Bear's question:

    <big>AXCGY89OLMNGR43WA</big>


    "You are provided with a code of 17 characters. If I divide the number of characters in this code by "X" the answer will be suggestive of what this code represents. What does "X" equal?"

    I wish, but no <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>. Unless you can clarify your subtle answer
