new code
« on: July 01, 2007, 09:40:47 PM »
Here is a new code. It is simple and I hope as many will attempt to solve it as possible. I hope that someone solves it before I get home from vacation at the end of the week. I broke the cypher into 4 lines only for the reason that it will not be too wide for this post. None of the lines  represent the end of a word, except for the last line. Please post whether you solved it or not. Good luck!

I am back from vacation in the Aderondacks in upstate NY. I thought someone would have answered even if they could not solve it  :'(   Would anyone want us to continue to try to solve cryptograms?
The answer was "Happy Independence Day America"

 ;D I just found your code of the week which was in the binary code.  I used a binary convertor off the internet and it gave "Happy Independence Day America"  as you had in your last post.  A little late I admit, but the answer was easy to obtain.

I'm glad to see some user-submitted ciphers, I was a bit busy due to vacations myself. Hooray for binary code! :D

There will be more codes. Simple ones at first. We will hopefully grow into more comples codes with discussion here. Just hang in there.

This is just a simple substitution cryptogram. You substitute one letter for another and it remains the same throughout the puzzle. Length of words, word formation and punctuation are clues to solving this puzzle. Just like you see in the newspaper every day :)   I hope someone solves this one. If you have any questions please ask. Please try to solve it and post it before Saturday, August 4th. I will post the answer that day. Good luck!!!!

Please make the next one just a wee harder.  This one took me 7 minutes.  But it was a great  opener for my day anyway.

Your answer is correct Dutch. Very good. "The search for truth is more precious than its possession.  Albert Einstein" It was intentially a very easy crypt with the intensions to get some more people to solve it and to create some chatter in here. More difficult ones will come of course but they will be easier in the beginning Hopefully they will get more difficult each time. Another one soon. Thanks for taking the time to solve it.  ;D

 :D  Here is a new cipher challenge until something better comes along.  I will post the answer in about a week unless someone solves it before then.

I added a spoiler mod, so that way people can post answers without inadvertently spoiling others. :D

Close, I fixed it for you. You didn't have the spoiler tag surrounding the solution. Also, thanks for continuing to provide ciphers to crack. :) I'll see about adding some of my own when I find the time.

It looks like its been awhile since someone has posted in this thread, but I thought I'd submit a code to see if anyone wants to take a crack at it. Once you know the key, it's fairly simple - I'm sure someone can create a javascript to crack similar codes.

Hint: Easiest if you start with the first word.

Catcherintherye has given me permission to publish the solution to his cipher challenge.  The answer is:  "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."  By running down the alphabet as in a "caesar" type cipher, most of the plain text (from the upper case letters - shift 5) became evident.  The lower case letters were in a shift between 0 and 4.    Even the simplest things can be quite tricky.

Thanks, and great job Dutch!

A little more on the explanation - the first occurrence of a letter is signified by a capital letter. For example, the "S" in "simplicity" is a capital "N". The 2nd occurrence of an "s" is in "is" so you shift 1 over from "n" to "o". The 3rd "s" is in "sophistication" so you shift once more from "o" to "p". So you have N=S, o=s, p=s, q=s.

A little tricky at the end, where the final two "k"s represent different letters - the 1st k is "i" and the second "k" is "o".

I'll endeavour to put in a different cipher every week - some easy, some not so - for starters try the following - so as not to spoil it for others, please don't post the solution until a weeks gone by.
(in the following plaintext the 'f' often represents the long 's' which fell out of use some time back and I've used a font which is similar to the original handwriting of the cipher itself)

circa. 1710

‘Mr. Forbes a scotchman being presented to Rougham living by Ld. Chanceler Cowper seemed a man of good temper & condition, but under a mistake as to the value of the living which had been he presented greater yn. proved. However continued there about half a year & then dyed in the morning of fuch a day as of hapned to dine there. Mr North being yn. at London his steward brought to me a fmall blew filk bag, wch. the woman yt. laid out the corps found tyed with a fmall riband about the ministers neck. upon opening the bag I found a paper very near the size of this, discoloured very yellow wth. sweat. I transcribed it in the fame character & words as they stood there. I was the rather induced to it having just before read in ye account of the Gowryes conspiracy in Scotland. The Earl Gowry after his death stripist was found to wear fuch a charm about his neck. wch. tis sd. prevented the bleeding of his wounds till the sd charm was taken off.’
