Special Features Section Broken?

I sat down after lunch and have just finished the book I really enjoyed it. But then I loaded up the special features section. I used every variation of the Jellyman's aide-de-campe as specified on page 397(Uk edition) but I canít get it to show me anything.

Help?

It is working for me.

Perhaps you made the same mistake as me I managed to spell Vaughn every way other than the correct one :/ I found a surprising number or ways to spell it incorrectly

Other than that does the rest of the site work properly? If not then perhaps there is a problem with the isp or your computer blocking scripts? I have tried it in IE, firefox and mozilla and it seems to be working.

I haven't read the book yet but, in my experience, the passwords generally have to be entered in capital letters.

I, too, am having problems accessing the Special Features. I have typed in the answer every way I can possibly think of--all caps, no caps, just as it is in the book... but I can't get in. I have the U.S. version--and the answer is on page 382, unless I'm being particularly dense.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

When will people learn not to just blurt out the answers.

Perhaps we could try handing out common sense and consideration instead of cake.

Phew, thanks for cluing me in! I kept trying to use the answer as indicated "right at the end of the book" in the paragraph starting "Humpty Dumpty was ..." (p.382, U.S. edition). I thought it was curious that it wasn't listed as "aides de camp" there when I first read the book.

One should expect spoilers on pages such as this.
