Has anyone tried putting this to graph paper? With 80 integers you'd have a 9x9 grid with one tile leftover. Like the indian blanket.
I'm no good at math but I always enjoy having statistics handy.
Which will have better odds? Rolling THrough 13 or 20 dice, 9 or12 times? FF might not approve of our "texting machines" but the calc app sure comes in handy.

2: 2.78%
3: 5.56%
4: 8.33%
5: 11.11%
6: 13.89%
7: 16.67%
8: 13.89%
9: 11.11%
10: 8.33%
11: 5.56%
12: 2.78%
You're almost 7x more likely to roll a sum of 7 than 2 or 12.When you find yourself at the end of the rainbow, you'll have found what you seek.

There is also a discussion on solving this on Jenny's Mysterious Writings forum that might help get you started on solving this.
Good luck!
I have also been on her boards. I think I discovered something today, which I will look at over the weekend.
I have been actively working on this for about 3 weeks now. It definitely a challenge.

I was stuck. Now I am not.

Hi Harry: glad to see that folks here are showing some interest in tackling Jenny's Special Words from Forrest puzzle. It is not trivial; it's multistage. There are clues as you solve it to let you know you are on the right track. Jenny has done a VERY careful job designing this puzzle/cryptogram. GeneticBlend is the only one I know by name who has solved it, though at least a few folks have done so. (Full disclosure: I am not yet one of them; I've solved the first stage, and I'm confident I know something solid about the second stage. But I still have a ways to go.)
