I'm guessing a bitwise nand? I haven't actually given the puzzle a go, but seeing what numbers appear in the &-cages, it seems quite likely.

I probably should have paid more attention to the use of & as the symbol for the operator. [blush]

Complete Change of Original Post: Bitwise And : One will have to use Binary, just as one does for Bitwise Or

To have a bit turned on (= 1) represented in the final answer, every number in the cage must have that bit turned on (= 1)

(6,7) & = 6
110
111
110

(2,5) & = 0
010
101
000

(3, 5, 7) & = 1
011
101
111
001

Ah, I had forgotten you submitted one like that, I'll take a look and let you know.

The next user puzzle will be another one by kus_theo, on Saturday.

Just wanted to jump in to say that I loved the 0-11 user submitted puzzle, and the -1 through 4 bonus. More "off-script" puzzles please!!!

I tried to get in touch with you about that puzzle (via e-mail), but no luck so far,
so trying it via the forum..

Getting to it... I'll try to recreate the puzzle (I sent it in so long ago that I've lost the paper [bored] )

EDIT: I responded to your email about it... just a mixup of coordinates [glare]

My twin solver is currently choking on this puzzle pair, I'll need to fiddle with the code a bit.

What I know so far: puzzle 1 has 48 solutions, puzzle 2 (the one with the bitwise operators)
has more than 3000 solutions (don't know the exact number yet).

Of these solution sets, exactly one pair needs to be identical.
