Default A very difficult predicament.

Hello there. I've been working on an internet puzzle, and I've come to a stump.

There's basically a digital communicator type flash application. It outputs 13 10-digit numbers and wants another 10 digit number back. It's not very consistent, but I've noticed quite a few patterns between all of the numbers output.

None of these are related, they are simply output by the same program and most likely related. Thanks!

Let me get this staight. You have a computer program. Said computer program is spewing out random sets of numbers that somehow relate to eachother, and you need to figure out another number that goes into each set...?

Well that's just the thing. We don't really know. It spews out those numbers, and has a keypad which takes a 10 digit number back.

http://locklegion.com/waterfall/ if it helps.

Uh, I'm sorry, I don't understand. The link just has a picture of a adding machine with the operations missing.

Why don't you find a mathematical program on the Internet to determine any relationships between these sets of numbers?

What is the purpose of this puzzle? Could you post it as an attachment in a .zip file? (Or, if it's a Java Applet, a link)
