California Rapid Alert Narcotics Enforcement Agency
Website Easter Egg
To reward teams' curiosity, we hid a mini-puzzle with a free-15-minute-hint bonus ($1500 salary) on the Cranea website. When teams submitted a picture with their application, their picture was saved with a random file name in the http://cranea.stanford.edu/teams directory. Anyone who tried to browse the directory (e.g., to look at the other teams' pictures) would have found the easter.txt file with the following mini-puzzle:
<EASTEREGG>



Curiosity has its rewards.



To get a FREE hint (of the 15-minute variety) during NEA training, 

tell the Cranea Rep the answer to the following riddle:



Bigger Than Ena

===============

Does Greek dio divide me?

	Of course no. 

Neither does tria, nor pente, 

	nor okto.

How small can I be, 

	and yet not be prime, oh?



It would benefit your team not to share the existence of this riddle.



</EASTEREGG>

As far as we know, nobody found this puzzle.

The answer -- the smallest composite number not divisible by 2, 3, or 5 -- is, of course, 49 (saranda-enia).
