Yep, I agree, pretty clever, Gary, and more of us shoulda sussed: Jan, as in January. The broken heart symbol is made with ALT+3 and there's two of them, three plus three is six, but then a full heart, hmm... Obviously a date cause Don's written 'on'  and then: questions will be answered. Probably goes to theme as well. Valentine's Day is too far away. Could we have another hint please? I'll take a vowel...

I've stared at the keyboard for 30 minutes to come up with a response and I can't come up with anything.  Too much, I give it away.  Too little, and it causes confusion.  

Had I known that anyone other than bert, me, and mr. blonde would actually want to be mod, I would have asked LC a lot sooner.  

So the hint is:

"One should take a long, hard look at what LC has written. Time is not on your side. "

Well, the Unicode values for the broken heart and heart are 1F494 and 1F493, respectively, which doesn't tell me anything. I can't figure out how to enter emoji using my keyboard, so the shortcuts are of no use to me.

If it's a simple cipher, it'd have to be JANxxy, and the numbers that make the most sense are 119 for Jan 1, '19. Obviously, we didn't get our answer on Jan 1. Setting x as zero, y could be any digit, but we didn't get an answer on Jan 1-9.

A more complicated cipher would take the heart halves as distinct elements, giving us JANxyxyz. Taking the last two as 19 again, that's JAN x1x '19, where the only x that makes sense is a zero. But we didn't get an answer on Jan 10, either. These leaves out the possibility of z being equal to x+y.

If it's as LC said and it's some kind of sum, then we have JAN x+x+y, which could be 3+3+6 (since a whole heart is two halves) for JAN 12. Could theoretically be 4+4+8 for JAN 16 or 5+5+10 for JAN 20 or 6+6+12 for JAN 24 or 7+7+14 for JAN 28. Those all seem unlikely.

Since "time is not on our side" I will go with JAN 12.

Huh?  Trust you, Frank.   You're like my hubby - majoring in English is just not sufficient, a mathematician freak as well.

That said I wonder if I'm overthinking it (probably) by adding Brady to Jan + heart equals bradycardia - usually defined as a resting heart rate that is below 60 beats per minute. Usual is between 60 and one hundred beats.

Do anything with those numbers? Ticking clock apparently.
P.S. J & B equals 12  on the alphabet.

Maybe itís much simpler than weíre making it ó two broken hearts become one (21). So on Jan 21 your questions will be answered. But thatís probably not it because OWCís are always announced on Fridayís, right?  So strike two for me.

I do have an alternate theory about how to determine the timing of the announcement. Iím off the airport in a bit, and it will be 16 hours before I get home, followed by me collapsing in bed.

Therefore the announcement should come in the next 24 hours

*Looking "a head" two broken hearts become one.

*Janus, the god of two faces, looks ahead to the future and back to the past as he makes a decision to break people's hearts in two and not hold the OWC until Valentines Day.

*Jan has broken two hearts, but will she break a third?

*Looking ahead, a half hearted attempt at finding love twice in the same month leads to a full attempt in February and Valentines Day becomes a national holiday because of it. Woo-hoo!
