    Good catch, Lobster.

    I HAVE to reread these chapters now that I understand more about the puzzle.

    It's one of those inference clues. The trick is the abnormal space.

    Shift the 'IS' to its correct position, and it will be bisected by the apostrophe.

    'THERE ' IS will become THREE I'S.

    Be on the lookout for THIRDS--there's more to them when you find them.

    Hello twelevers,

    Just got the book last week, definitely enjoying it so far. On 6-14, I've deciphered the clue, understand the question, and feel certain that I've got the right answer...but still it's not working. There are two different ways that this word is often spelled, and neither is accepted in the log book. I've tried capitalized, lowercase, entering them encrypted in the same way that the question was, but no luck. Any advice from a kind fellow questor out there?

    Many thanks,
    calvin

    Calvin,

    Welcome !

    C6-Q14 - upper/lowercase doesn't make a difference when entering answers into the website. It ends in "z" if it helps...

    Thanks so much. Great job discovering that, since that's almost never the way that term is referenced.

    Hey all!! I'm brand new to the site and the hunt and I'm down to 10 questions left to go. The bane of my existence is 6-14. Can anyone PM me or possibly give me a hint on what type of cipher this is? Thanks in advance!

    The formatting of the ciphertext is sneaky, but you've used this type elsewhere in the Ch6 questions.

    I need help. On Q14, I'm using Playfair cipher with Mel's favorite saying as keyword & changed letters O to V. The final answer ends in Z. Am I doing this right? Is so, how do I read it? Do I have to translate it?

    Is there a keyword for C6Q2? Figure out Q1 & 14. The password I found by letter substitute for the 1st word & 2 letters on the second word, both found at the end of the poem. Only problem, I can't figure out the poem. Is it in a different language?

    Hi,


    Does anyone have an electronic format (e.g. text file, MS Word) of Chapters 6 and 9? My OCR software can't recognize the fonts so the clean up task is formidable. I'm hoping someone already completed the task and wouldn't mind sharing their work.


    Regards,
