    Applies to both strings - alpha and omega - just depends where you are on the so-called "marathon". I found the ciphers have confirmations in consistent locations, so each output corroborates the step. But, I haven't won anything, so everything's up for interpretation and reinterpretation.

    The final clue tells us something does or does not count.

    Well summer break is half over. Anyone still working on this without new clues?

    Still working on it now and then. Hard to make much progress because there are so many possible paths to explore, but I still try to either discount some of them, or look for the AHA!

    When you get to the center go back to 1's.
    Any thoughts?

    Still working on Chapter 6 and submitting key strings (~40) over break, obviously no joy yet. Started on Chapter 7 as I needed something different. Will likely work both chapters in parallel as I'm running out of substitution and permutation ideas on this one.

    Of good things to know, in this clue, the theme should not count.
    The theme is Today's the day! So I guess it does not count.
    What does count is "today is the day" and the first "person"
    Anyone figure out xxxfxxx?
    F is the 4th key or a six in the middle.

    No new clue yet so I will throw out this old one to discuss:
    If and only if 10+5=5 and 21-6=5 then the answer is close at hand.
    Not a key placement clue since there are only 20 keys. So what does it mean? That 15 equals 5? Is it indeed a key placement clue? Or is it a clue about a shift?
    Then why do both math problems need to be correct?

    Possibly the exact wording of the clue is a clue "Iff 10+5=5 and 21-6=5, then the answer is close at hand. "
    Has anyone ever found the date the clue was given to be part of the clue? This clue was given March 30th, 2016 or 3-30-16.

    Hopefully the next clue will be on 9-22-17 the first day of autumn.

    Did everyone see the new message? Looks like we're not the only ones frustrated. I continue to work on the book - both chapters 6 and 7.
