This is a real puzzle, in the sense that I'm puzzled by what I've found.

I stumbled upon a google sheet in my google drive.


The first column contains the (Swedish) alphabet, one letter on each row. The second and third columns are manually entered numbers. The fourth column is the difference between the second and third column. The fifth and sixth column contains a few manually entered numbers.

This info was input on friday the 28th of August 2015 at 9 pm.

What could I possibly have been doing? Does anyone see a sensible pattern here?

  • $\begingroup$ It has to be 2 sets of letter frequencies, although all the extra letters are in column B, suggesting that 6 letters were added to text 2. They're E,L,N and D,T,Z, which obviously can't make a word. Any idea why it's titled Kamera? $\endgroup$ – Tommy Jollyboat Feb 1 '19 at 11:49
  • $\begingroup$ The title "Kamera" is most likely not related. Looking at the version history, I used the same document to compare cameras earlier. $\endgroup$ – gibson Feb 3 '19 at 15:11
  • $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome to the site. Could you please "convert" your spread-sheet and post it directly here? It is not so good to have some links to some offsite place here... $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest Mar 3 '19 at 18:12
  • $\begingroup$ It's not so much in the spirit of Puzzling, but could you give some more context about what you generally were doing in August 2015. Were you a student? $\endgroup$ – Sirens Mar 5 '19 at 5:06

Could it be:

Frequency of letters in two very similar passages of text?

  • $\begingroup$ literally just reread the title and realised you already came to this possible conclusion... $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Feb 1 '19 at 10:31
  • $\begingroup$ Hmm yes, but the words "very similar" in your answer gave me an idea. Perhaps we should look into what can be created given the two sets of letters... or their difference. $\endgroup$ – gibson Feb 1 '19 at 11:01
  • $\begingroup$ @gibson as a non-swede i don't think I'd be much help on that front.... $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Feb 1 '19 at 11:07
