    Default Can you imagine...

    I wonder if people in the NSA (who are principally charged with cracking foreign codes) participate in these kinds of things. I mean, how quickly could they crack what, on their level, has to be amateurish cyphers (assuming, of course, that there are cyphers here)?

    Just makes you think... maybe the book is just one national way to recruit for intelligence agencies (anybody remember the movie "The Last Starfighter"?)

    Don't get nervous if the other team has their biggest kid get off the bus first. Frankly, the game we're playing here isn't the same game the NSA plays (well, the ball is pretty different).

    If you'd like a more NSAesque puzzle to work on, look up KRYPTOS. It's an encoded piece of art located on the grounds of the CIA.

    IF you ask me, the problem with this puzzle isn't the difficulty of the decryption, it's FINDING THE CIPHER TEXT.

    yeah! you can't decode the code if you don't know if it's a code, at least the nsa people know that what they're working with is a code and they have really big computers to help them, not fairies.

    Been debating this myself, wouldn't you think one of them would want to try it just for kicks? I just keep taking hope in that he says people of all ages and you only have to be able to read! (just keep repeating this and it will all seem better in the morning LOL)

    I introduce myself as new to the hunt.
    I bought the book about three weeks ago. I have read it, read it to grandchildren, shared it with my daughter. This website is very informative and quite exciting to read.

    I thoroughly enjoy the many theories and the updates.

    Happy treasure hunting
