Bobbibunny, I don't do numerical puzzles, but I opened this just to see if I too encountered problems. I didn't, I got taken straight to the puzzle.

Tatters, thanks. Even though I'll be ignoring this puzzle, I still appreciate you posting it!

What is the correct interpretation of "a repeated digit"? Does this mean aab or abb, or does it include aba?

I was wondering the same. Sadly, it’s probably the latter. I’d marked three clues as possible entry points into solving but all three have thrown up too many possibilities to be of much use. Hm.....?

It's aab or abb. I didn't need to use that until near the end though. Really enjoyable numerical, this. Very clever.

Very clever but Christ I nearly lost the will to live several times - even at the end I was convinced I'd gone hopelessly wrong somewhere as the final message appeared gibberish. It's a good job the preamble mentions the word lengths as without them I'd still be unconvinced, but once the crayons came out it looked bang on. Had to Google to check the creator mind as I'd never heard of him.

Does ‘digits in ascending order’ mean e.g. 456, or could it cover e.g. 479? The descriptions are just a little on the vague side in places.
