Here is a fun little site, full of challenges that can be solved using python:

I don't get it at all. I am probably too tired to figure out what to do...

Yes, they're a little cryptic  ;D

For instance, on the first one you need to solve the problem and then alter the URL with your answer.  The point of the site is that you should be able to solve each one with a little python script (even if it's just something in IDLE).

I'm still on the second one, so I can't help you any further!

I found these, and finished two or maybe three. But I found that I was spending far more effort trying to figure out what, exactly, the question was, compared to the effort of figuring out how to answer it in Python. Who's got time for that kind of nonsense?

Agreed!
