For Ring Ring (hanicim) and Ring Ring Ring (kezirin): nosebab
I liked this puzzle.  I used trial-and-error instead of a theory-based approach.  Although I guess I was thinking that imagethe machine calculates f(x) = x * (0 - x) and that would have to have a fixed-point (other than zero).  Clearly f(-1) = -1 no matter what modulus you use but I don't have any proof that some of the rest of the odd numbers wouldn't fall into a separate cycle.  Luckily things worked out pretty well.

For Ring Ring (hanicim) and Ring Ring Ring(kezirin): ryzoror

No modulo arithmetic here - just trying all possibilities

For Foxhole III[/font] zufixom : The Key to getting the Fox dydopyc

I haven't looked for other solutions, so I don't know if it has been done this way before.  I just think that the control of the dozers is different than what I have seen before.

I found that much harder than I expected.  My solution to zufixom is nasyhos.  It uses a very different approach to the calculation from your one.  image8 minus all the other crates equals the missing one.

Actually imagefrom combining humbugger's calculation approach with my odd cycles, I've found a much simpler solution myfopup

I have looked at Cistern [(level]dyxycoh[/level)0 many times in the past but did not look at any solutions.

Today I took on the challenge to solve it with . (vigimez).  I thought my solution was
pretty ugly until I looked at some of the others.  I don't think there is a pretty way to solve it.

Did you mistype the level name? There is no level vigimez.

Sorry Sad

For Cistern dyxycoh
it should be vaagimez

I did a copy and paste from the navigation field.  It has it with an I instead of an A. Huh

 I will try this after I post.

Nicely done. I used the same idea but imageI didn't get it to stop at exactly four crates like that.
