Challenge Puzzles  - 
 
For http://AncientSocieties.com/look-up-high ...

Since day one I figured that the two non-crossed pairs represented double letters, or at least maybe two of the same letter, while the crossed ones represented only one of the matching letter.  The most likely were one or two LL and maybe one RR, since those were the only double letters in those.  But Gallirallus, Gallirallus Australiis and Weka, etc. didn't work.

In the two non-crossed pairs, the way to get those letters into the right position is to push (force under duress?) the letters from one side or the other until the adjacent squares have the same letter in them. The same thing can be done with the crossed ones, pushing the letters and filling in the blanks being created on one end with the letters that are dropping off the other end until the letters match up in the common square.

I've tried various ways to do that, and get many variations where the letters at the crossing points match up.  But nothing stands out to me.

Does anyone else see any Australia-related anagrams in this list?

Try to find some native word from those letters relative to nature (dunno why?) but no luck at all...

Instead of "63 65 61 6e 70 61 63 69 66 69 71 75 65", I got "6f 63 65 61 6e 70 61 63 69 66 69 71 75 65". The "6f" comes from inside the braces to the left of the decimal point, 6 dots on the 7 and 15 dots (0xf) on the 5.

There is a supposed hint for that weekly Look Up High challenge puzzle. The http://t.co/y1EjFZh6XJ/s/cJFn link in the tweet redirects to http://stl.la/lookuphigh but that redirects again to a Not Found

"ITHER" and "SYPHONED"?  Maybe those are supposed to be "OTHER" and "SIPHONED", but then the prefixes don't work. Unless come up with a new word includes coming up with words that don't already exist.
