I finally managed to get a solution to One Calculator Office (-) working. It's gotta be at least twice as hard as the + version because you have to put everything in in the right order or it doesn't work. I finally thought of making my machine go imagearound the calculator instead of under or above it, but then it was still really, really hard for me to get the imagetemplate barrel in place without completely breaking everything else.
My solution is imagecafotos, if you want to take a look.

Ok, here's something that might be interesting. One Way Track: jidopyc.

And, remember mykogyd? The level that would've needed a 7 tick template copier? Well, I came up with a more sensible, upside-down version of it that stops at a certain randomized point instead of being continuous. The Curious Submarine: fagesec gilubyd

"Say When" -- libyfop
This one is basically asking for the other half of a kind of machine I'm interested in, but don't quite understand how to build--where a number input is turned into a certain length of time. I've seen them used before, so this is probably pretty easy, but I'd like to get a better understanding of how to build one of those things...

My solution: saluder

imageIt's pretty much a mechanism like the one you have at the top, but with a gate to stop it when it reaches F, and using the number input to determine when it starts. I put an extra 7 barrel in there to use the same adder to control what number corresponded to what length; this trick only works once, you need to use a separate adder to work as a stream version of the level. The 1 barrel can be changed to an F barrel to count in the other direction.

EDIT: Haha, wow my solution is so similar to Werbad's.

EDIT EDIT: My solution to One Way Track (jidopyc): gypefam. imageIt's actually pretty much exactly the same mechanism as Say When, the only difference is that machinery's needed to communicate via the backwards pipe. And as usual for easy puzzles, I added extra machinery to lock the whole thing up when it's finished.

For One Way Track (jidopyc): gyvagyh

I don't think The Curious Submarine (fagesec) is possible to solve in general: the first barrel that comes out at the bottom is different from the first one that is used internally. That means that it is not possible to reproduce the internal state of the machine.

Well...that certainly wasn't intentional. gilubyd should fix that problem.

I had a puzzle idea. I think the idea itself should be possible but I'm not sure if the exact arrangement I have here is solvable.

Well, it looks like you found some errors in my design--like the ability to block the locks from locking and use the up-copier. I think pevugyd should better include all the challenges I wanted it too.
