Yesterday my mother asked me to buy some stamps. Stamps, in the land of BrainBashers, are available in 3p, 9p, 11p, 17p and 21p denominations.

For three types of stamp I was asked to buy eight of each. For the other two types of stamp, I was asked to buy nine of each.

Unfortunately I forgot which I was supposed to buy eight of and which to buy nine of.

Luckily my mother had given me the exact money required to buy the stamps, £5.00 and the shopkeeper was able to give me the correct stamps.

Which stamps did I buy?

The BrainBashers safe has a rather unusual control panel.

In order to open the safe you have to press every single button once only, in the correct sequence, ending on the button marked E.

Each button clearly states which button to press next, for example, 2U means move up 2 buttons and 3R means move right 3 buttons.

Can you determine which button you must start with?

BrainBashers Derby

After the local BrainBashers Derby, some friends were telling everyone who had won.

Unfortunately, the friends were having problems with their memories and in the course of the evening they changed their minds a number of times.

In summary they made the following statements:

Alan said:
   Steve Short won on Quick Cloud.
   Tim Tiny won on Morning Sunset.
   Dave Diddy won on Quick Cloud.

Brian said:
   Simon Small won on Blue Paws.
   Dave Diddy won on Quick Cloud.
   Steve Short won on Morning Sunset.

Charles said:
   Tim Tiny won on Blue Paws.
   Simon Small won on Blue Paws.
   Simon Small won on Morning Sunset.

Derek said:
   Tim Tiny won on Quick Cloud.
   Dave Diddy won on Morning Sunset.
   Simon Small won on Blue Paws.

However, none of the statements were fully true.

In fact, only six of the statements were exactly half true (i.e. either the person won, or the horse did), the rest were false.

Can you determine who won and which horse they were riding?
