It took me quite a while, but I last I got it. This has been one of the more difficult "group" teasers I've seen so far. Good job Krishnan.

I stared at the puzzle and hint for a few minutes, then the little reading voice in my mind emphasized the capitalized ALTERNATE in the hint and I got it. Lots of fun!
