The encipherer has advanced one letter on the vowels only -

ie. the first word is 'penna'

remember there was no 'j' 'v' or 'w' in the alphabet then so 'i' is represented by 'k' and 'u' by 'x'

I've been addicted to cryptograms since I was in high school, however, I've never taken the time to learn more about the field of cryptography. I was really hoping that this would be a good place to learn more. It might also give me an opportunity to brush the cobwebs off of all of the linguistics, grammar and etymology books I have. I took the courses and it would be nice to put them to some use before I die.

Welcome, Vigrid! :D I mostly just know the basics of cryptography myself, but it's fun trying to figure out what people were thinking when they encrypted something particularly challenging.

I'm still learning how the forum operates, but I can't figure out how you can know when someone comments on a comment or a post you've made.

The only reason why I found your welcoming comment to my first post was to go back and search for the first post myself. I think the web site looks great and it is a wonderful idea, but it could be a bit more user friendly. Maybe if we have a tutorial thread on how to use the available features more effectively, it would make it easier getting started.

Just a thought. I did not want to sound critical. It looks like you've put a lot of work into this site.

Thanks. The forum itself is actually pre-made though (Simple Machines Forum software); I just chose what theme to use. If you look at the links at the top and bottom of every thread, there's one that says Notify, which basically lets you choose whether or not to be notified when someone replies.
