    As science correctly noted a couple of comments up, the answer is an anagram of the letters AERST.

    This is a one-word answer, and a word which anagram programs such as design215 should come up with for you if needed.

    [edited to add: No, I'm wrong about that. I just checked Design215 does not come up with this word, even though it's a perfectly fine word which can be found in the dictionary and which I'm pretty sure all of you will be familiar with. It's a word which comes up in a number of DK diaries.)

    The thing which is the answer is, indeed, a wire propeller (I took that straight out of the definition) -- but that's probably not the aspect of it that comes first to mind when you think of this thing.

        Still Naomi's code message, sny's logic puzzle, and several Bad Translations to work on.

        Although mimi9 is going through the Bad Translations pretty quickly, so we may be down to just the logic puzzle and code message soon!

        One possible solution people have come up with for Naomi's message, which pucklady told me about, is STEAL AN ID, FAKE TITLE. That matches the dot-dash pattern provided exactly.

        But there are many possible ways to group the dots and dashes, so that may not be the intended answer. So I'm hoping to find time later this week to work on that one. If I come up with anything good I'll post it here in comments (or share it next week).
