And I must add my thanks and congratulations to beteljuice - very cleverly put together, as expected of course from all your work here. And less my sense of humour is misinterpreted ... fun to do 8-)

Spoiler #2

Having answered the previous random IRIS question, you get the following clue ...
Next clue ...

All good hunts need a c???t and a ??p

So first, historically for the French, it's a must-have option !
So pay attention, you will be using a chart, and at some point a map.

Goto Charts => Historic (fr) ... and click on the obviously French option for the next pop-up clue.

Spoiler #3

This seems to be the first troublesome hurdle !

From spoiler #2 and selecting chart option "Croissants" you should've got:


Next clue ...

User dickie is spying on agents of CROAK who are about to unleash a toxin that will destroy half the worlds plant life.

Remove control centre with extreme predudice !
So what about user dickie ?
Spoiler #2 said "So pay attention, you will be using a chart, and at some point a map."

So goto Other Links => Cumulus User Map

Select 'dickie' in the table list.

Please don't kill dickie, although you won't be penalised if you do :roll:

He is South of a small airfield, move the crosshairs to the only building (10053) and hit the "FIRE" button.

Next clue pops up (Which also seems to be a 'stumbler' for some)

Spoiler #4

... and another hurdle too high for some 8-)

From spoiler #3
Next clue ...

Alternatively, This Month, you should look under the table list like Gutenberg or Caxton
For this one goto Extremes => Alternative Monthly

Choose option "List Style"

Gutenberg and Caxton were pioneers of PRINTing.

On the right-hand pane choose "Print Table (Experimental)"

In your print preview your next clue is at the bottom of the page :groan:

Spoiler #5

Looking at the bottom of the print preview from spoiler #4 you should see ..
Next clue ...

Check the state of the logo.

(No pointers)
So we go to the status page ;)
... but there is nothing about the logo :roll:
Click on the logo - and the next clue appears.

"No pointers" is a hint that the cursor won't change to show it's a link. :groan:

Still only the first two original finishers :lol:

Spoiler #6

From spoiler #5

You should have got:
Honestly

Next clue ...

Patience is a virtue ...
... wait 20 seconds :bash:

It changes to:

Patience has it's own reward
Time for a puzzle ...
Which is a link to a (random) jig-saw.

Spoiler #7

Solving the jig-saw that spoiler #6 gives you ...
Clues are getting harder ...

Quality, in particular matters
2.5 hits the spot.
So you navigate to "Air Quality" (Particulate Matter)

Click on the orange 2.5 'spot' in the Relative sizes graphics at the top-left .

Up pops yet another clue :cry:
