    Because the clue was late yesterday and i suspect you find it this morning ... so may be 6 hours ago. Then if you are working how long could you really work on the clue and forget your work ? Anyway at most you worked 6 hours .... could you consider to work more than that before to ask for help, it is just what i say !

    Well you shouldn't assume anything.

    I found the clue as soon as it was posted last night and I've spent a while looking at it today with no luck, which is why I asked for help.

    Well i shouldn't assume anything but in any case you didn't spend a lot of time unless you don't sleep.

    So may be sleep, sometimes good idea come by that way

    macphisto - I have solved the clue. What is your initial guess as to the cipher used?

    Vincent is right - take a little time and do some basic cryptanalysis here. 1) look at the structure for word lengths to be normalized. 2) look at the letter distribution. 3) Try combinations of things.

    It really is simple once you look at this way.

    Good luck - now that I know what is says, I have to figure out what the clue means!

    no i wouldnt say this clue is easy to decipher.

    remember, vincent has a super computer program that can check like 30 different encryption types at once. so yes, the answer will always be easy for him.

    This one is pretty straightforward compared to the "addition" one from chapter 1.

    Hint: you will need 2 ciphers.

    Good luck.

    Breathe in, breath out, breath in, breath out - this is not a clue for the cipher, just the tension in the room !
