Puzzle of Fortune!

Recently, both Hewlett Packard and IBM named women as their Chief Executive Officers. To celebrate, here’s a puzzle for you. All I’ll say is that the puzzle was designed this past summer. (Part of the puzzle is to figure out what you’re supposed to do and how you’re supposed to extract the answer.)

If you solve it, you are welcome to send your answer to us at: girlsanglepuzzler “at” gmail.com. Put your answer as the subject of your email and place your contact information in the body of the message. We will randomly draw from the correct answers received by 11 pm on November 11, 2011 (yes, that’s right…11 pm on 11/11/11!) to select a “winner” and send the winner a small (worth about $11…and probably involving chocolate) prize.

(We will not use your contact information for any purpose other than to deliver your prize, should you win. After the winner has been selected, all emails received will be promptly deleted. At the winner’s discretion, we will let you know who won. Anyone who makes more than one submission will be disqualified! Sorry! Also, this offer is only valid in those states in the United States where such things are legal. There is no fee to enter this puzzle contest.)

Added November 12, 2011: This puzzle contest is now over. Here’s the winner and solution.
