Trivia time

This one proves to be difficult as well.. Can anyone help out?

Spoiler

Two codes... : I've got 'switch' (codes 26 and 34), but the other word (with which 1 code should start and another one end, right?) I can't find.

Spoiler

Unassailability: what can I do with 50?

Spoiler

Messiah/satan: no clue what's being asked for. Should i reverse the words and take the second letter ('a')? But that's not an initial is it?

Spoiler

Transmissions: I remember one puzzle referring to the transmission panne again (chronological ordering). Should I do something with that?

Spoiler

Ralph Paul: whaaat? No idea what's being asked here.

Re: Trivia time

First

Spoiler

Two codes began and ended with the same letter.

second

Spoiler

Half its value...Is there another (perhaps older) way to write what you found?

third

Spoiler

Messi ahsatan - you are on the right track.  Though the result, with different spacing, has been seen before...

The other 2 I am stuck on.... but I made the correct guess from the above answers

Re: Trivia time

You can find the answers by repeating your history i.e., the puzzles and answers in this book. 

As for 4 & 5

Spoiler

"Transmission" does not refer to the messages on the website.  One puzzle is specifically about transmissions.   

Spoiler

Don't focus on "Ralph Paul."  Focus on finding a puzzle where you might find someone at 300

Spoiler

Only two codes start and end with the same letter, this is answer 1, the letter

Spoiler

Find Unassailability in an earlier code, look at how that code was solved and get answer two by halving that value

Spoiler

If you 'return' Messiah/Satan you will recognise a name from an earlier code

Spoiler

This is very literal, in the broadcast puzzle you will see one that wasn't changed

Spoiler

An earlier puzzle has extension codes, you should spot Ralph Paul in there
