    Ok, what am I doing wrong? In C5Q9, using required Cipher shown with a N being 19, I get
    " 0he s0a0e of he4aq is also pop1larl5 kno3n as". Any help?

    Use the cipher tool on the Great Hunt website. It has a good tool to decode this

    The cipher on the web site doesn't explain itself very well. Since I'm a novice in ciphering, how do you use it? What do the symbols mean?

    "Today is the Day". Our team thinks we made a major breakthrough in solving the book. To test our theory, we are entering a set of keys for today for chapter 5. That's right, no facebook clues! If our formula works, the solutions are very easy. If not, then we are way off track. We will anxiously wait and see if the Silver Eagle #5 comes back to Canada!

    Well, I got my rejection notice, so my formula doesn't work. The rest of my team is going to continue working on this book, but I am taking some time off. Good luck everyone. It has been a blast.
