    Default Chapter 9 - Whip

    On page 23 there is a code of numbers and letters
    30B27E21E51A36J42F11C11D1B2G35B2
    2C15G15H23E5B41C8F33G33H33I24E48
    C23A4A50E4E19C35A22B28G43E15D40

    At first, it looked to me like hexadecimal computer code. But the numerals go 0-9 and the letters go A-J. Could be a 10x10 matrix. Or a bigram substitution. Any ideas?

    I had thought hexadecimal at first as well. The "wordsearch" is 10x10, but the problem with the above is that it doesn't read one number + one letter, so you can't really pinpoint anything in a grid.

    I ran those numbers and letters through a crypto program I have and got an answer. It is a two part answer, but the interesting part is I entered some of the info I had in a Google search and I found a forum that contained the very answer I had that someone had run in July. I used the MD2 to decrypt. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so pm me if you want anymore details, gl

    I've been trying to find a good new crypto program, as the one I was using has been removed. I PM'd you if you could send me the info on the one you are using. Thanks.

    Maybe you can. I noticed there are sometimes 2 numbers together, but never 2 letters. I guess the trick is to label the axis of the wordsearch correctly.

    It appears that my enthusiasm far out weighs my knowledge. Thanks to Rusty for setting me straight, the answer I got is just a sample message given with the software I downloaded. I think it might be a useful tool to have on hand but it didn't find squat otherwise with the Cowboy numbers and letters. Thanks again for your time and guidence Rusty, goatlady

    Have you gotten anything useful out of using the "wordsearch" letters as a look up table? The table is missing D and F which does not preclude its use like this, but curious since I've tried various ciphertexts and could not find any proper axes yet.

    Well I'm glad that was cleared up. I downloaded the program you told me about and I wasn't able to get the message you were talking about. Now, I know not to look to hard. Keep working at it goatlady, I'm sure something will come.

    I'm glad I was able to help. I do a lot of work with modern cipher systems and computer security algorithms such as the MD2 hash.

    Unfortunately, my computer science background has not helped me very much with treasure hunts.
