Clue: the collection of British dudes all have something in common.

I'm pretty sure I have the composer. Horning in on the piece. Fingers crossed.
Altoid - curiously strong.

That should've been a piece of cake for you. But once you know the composer, the rest is simple enough. :)

(Guys and Gals! That's another clue)

Should Opus X's be seasonal?
Is it keeping you up for nights on end?

:twisted:

P.S. Forgive my cruelty, I don't know why I like to taunt. Perhaps it's genetic.

Those still trying to solve HAL's Opus X should look very carefully at the clues he left in his last post. :D

Y'know, I've never once figured out an Opus X. One time, the answer leaped off the screen, smacked me between the eyes, and laid quivering on my keyboard waiting for me to pick it up and document it, but there was no puzzling, figuring, and solving involved.

I'm still baffled, lost in the dust, confused, bewildered,...
You get the idea.

I admire all you sneaky, twisty, puzzle-solvers. :dunce:

the problem I have is I cannot get a few moments to really think about
Opus X as the phone rings... , someone stops by my office, or I have to run to another meeting....

My Opus X "philosophy" is
Bombard with clues until it "clicks"
Though it will drive some "men delirious"
The damage "is undone" when it sticks.

TM, just write down those words in quotes and keep reading them in your mind and see if hal's phi losophy clicks.

And final praises to Marye, the last person to correctly name this Opus X.

And now, it is time to reveal the answer:
