I made a nonstandard transaction with all the info you need to spend it contained inside, now all you have to do is create the corresponding scriptPubKey and get your free 1.5 BTC Smiley
http://pastebin.com/VKi7psby
This one was spent.

EDIT: I made another one for later, donate for the winner: 1GYR2ugRiAZmnrDuyQFNSRBzLBn3NXmvoJ (Ill be posting the first clue sometime tomorrow, sadly this one isnt quite as bitcoin-related but it ends in free bitcoins, so what do you care?).

Scroll down for the first clue and get on your way.

And ...already solved.  gmaxwell and Joric were quick.  I'll post the solution when one of their transactions confirms and hell, maybe Ill do more...
In fact, all the donations I get for the next couple days to 1GYR2ugRiAZmnrDuyQFNSRBzLBn3NXmvoJ will go to another puzzle like this, have to see what I can come up with.

Crap. I'm always so busy with reading some garbage on the forum that by the time I see these threads, they're already done.

The solution to this was:
Look at the txout and notice that the first string will be dropped, so decode that into text and you get "README provided by vrs/lambda".
Google that and you should get a link to the nightly server, grab the README file from the win32 nightles and scroll down:
You will fine "On the right track, considered looking for a hash reverser?" followed by "63e5f1ab96b5c328ea3aa484e08f18dcb8e7fabc3ae09082510da558ab32348b".
If you take a look at the script again, you will see that in order to spend it, you will need something who's SHA1 hash is a228a5f5367648b230f17a085646e56ae6e4ae53.
If you go to the top level of my domain (bluematt.me) you will notice a Hash Reverser, go there and enter a228a5f5367648b230f17a085646e56ae6e4ae53 and select SHA1.
You will get an error message saying "Hold on there, you shouldn't be using this service to steal money."
If you take a look at the source, you will see a message at the bottom which says "<!-- Error: missing $_GET['password'] -->", so add a
&password=63e5f1ab96b5c328ea3aa484e08f18dcb8e7fabc3ae09082510da558ab32348b to the end of the URL and see the answer is 1EdawPCb4rhMxz1UapNnA9tZZt6ZoqaPrS.
Now just create a transaction with that as its scriptSig and send it off (of course its too late now).

Just a note: because Eligius, for some reason, did not confirm the nonstandard transaction (despite it having the required fee), the payout was sent manually to the first person who solved the problem and was able to create a transaction that would have spent the one posted.

This next one is a bit less focused on Bitcoin and a bit more focused on your general tech chops
(IsStandard makes confirms of spends take too long...).
Anyway, all you need for this one is some 1337 action on my dnsseedns.

... is that the clue?

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

The word 'that' is ambiguous. Are we decoding line 29 or line 20?

And what are we decoding?  What kind of text is that? base58 to text?

I'm a noob. Thanks for the noob help

I don't feel so dumb after all.  Grin I got to the string with the first clue, but I couldn't make anything with it. Let me see if I can find something more...

I found the base58 string, AND gave you some 1337 action, but I am still completely lost. Even Google didn't help. (And I can't quite read German...)

Not sure what german you need, but I was hoping google would update by now, but apparently they very very rarely crawl websites... oh well lets see if someone finds it before google updates.

You are decoding the line that starts with 29.

And what are we decoding?  What kind of text is that? base58 to text?
Its plain ASCII in hex.

I didn't think I needed any German. But I got redirected to a German website after your 1337 action. (I'm REALLY trying not to post the content of your clue here. Work with me...) As for Google, if you aren't a news site updating several times a day, or a blog, then you'll be lucky if they crawl you once a month. If you're depending on Google, this could be a loooooong wait....

I figured out the meaning of the message and string, but I am struggling with this next (and hopefully last) step.

Just to clear it up, the reference to a German guy/site is going down the wrong path, look again.
