    What would you call "word groupings" ?
    Is there one that sticks out as "not like the others" ?

    If you have the plain text and the cipher text then you need to try the different cipher types to figure out which one it is...

    I figured after transferring the numbers into letters, that each letter within the hyphens is a word. I have gone upside down trying to find a poem by that author that fits that pattern. Even if I stretch my imagination from the Slightly Wrong Book of Poems , I still am at a mental freeze.

    Hi Giorduh -

    I had a similar problem. Trust me it's there!

    One of the nudges that helped me was to base your hunt for the poem from prior authors we have used in the past. Once you know the author you can go to any type of archive site and look up their works. Since we are not actually looking for the title of the poem we don't have the usual clues to go on here, so you will need to figure out another method of searching for a way around this difference. Basically you need to think to yourself, "what do I have in front of me" that I am reading and how do I find it's twin on the internet.

    In regards to what BoatDaddy mentioned, you have the cipher tool, you just need to try the right one based on the "type" of texts you have available to work from.

    Hope some of this helps. Good luck!

    So it's been 7 years... anybody want to give me some hints on the proper way to decipher Ch11Q8? It still really bugs me.

    Are you talking about the Keyboard cipher or the Baconian cipher

    Both. I had never heard of the keyboard cipher, but I will play with that now. Will that then help me with the Baconian cipher?

    Okay, regarding the first cipher in Ch11Q8, I was able to reduce the number of errors in my decryption from ~19 to 4. I still need to solve those 4 errors, and then see if that helps with the 2nd half of this question. I've tried using what I now know about the first part to modify the Bacon of part 2, but no luck yet.
