Crack the Code
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
In an attempt to further protect his secret chicken recipe, Colonel Sanders has locked it away in a safe with a 10digit password. Unable to resist his crispy fried chicken, you'd like to crack the code. Try your luck using the following information:
All digits from 0 to 9 are used exactly once.
No digit is the same as the position which it occupies in the sequence.
The sum of the 5th and 10th digits is a square number other than 9.
The sum of the 9th and 10th digits is a cube.
The 2nd digit is an even number.
Zero is in the 3rd position.
The sum of the 4th, 6th and 8th digits is a single digit number.
The sum of the 2nd and 5th digits is a triangle number.
Number 8 is 2 spaces away from the number 9 (one in between).
The number 3 is next to the 9 but not the zero.
HintA triangle number is one which can be written with one number on the first line, 2 on the second, 3 on the third etc. Like tenpin bowling style! (The first of these are 1, 3, 6)

 That is a really poor explanation of what a triangle number is. It still made no sense.

 That did require a bit of thinking and a pen and a piece of paper but it was really good. I finally got it. Yay! I couldn't figure out what the triangle number was, but then I realized I didn't need to and figured it out and then I realized that if I looked at the hint it would have made it much easier...oh well. I'm impressed that you could come up with something like that.

 Nope, the SUM of the 5th and 10th was a square besides 9...

 Nice teaser, the only problem I had was with your wording... you said digits at some points and position at others which could end up changing the problem
