    Default Hint

    Hint:

    Look in the locked thread on this board. There *might* be a puzzle that might relate to this...

    As for the f(x), that is a piecewise function... lol, gotta love algebra.


    signing out in best regards,

    Lol, I suppose a hint #2 would come in handy...

    But first, I'm going to ask a question...
    Should I, or should I not continue w/ puzzles until the last token is found, as that will take up most of our time?

    ^I'd like that answered, but the answer's gonna be yes anyway...

    Hint:

    Look at the number of characters in the long string... (^?)

    And:

    How hard is solarus going to try to make a really hard graph that depicts a... ... ... thing...
    (The graph's easy)

    Ta
    hl
    al
    t
    s

    tahl alts


    I can't believe I did that! *gasp*

    The answer to this is going up very soon... as in tomorrow.

    Get your answers in!
    I have received only one correct answer, any answers after I post this will get an honorable mention. Because I am going to give you a big hint...

    Here is your final hint:

    Caesar Ciphers are well known. Caesar used it during his rule to transmit messages to his various armies.
    The Caesar Cipher always has a square number of letters or characters in it. See below to see an example of a Caesar cipher.

    Code:
    Hello, I am Solarus -> sixteen characters
    
    Hell
    o,ia
    msol
    arus
    
    Read up to down instead of left to right.
    
    -> Homae,srlioulals <-
    
    Now, that message is split into semi-readable "words"
    
    -> Homae, sr liou lals <-
    
    To solve, simply put them in columns again.
    
    Homa
    e,sr
    liou
    lals
    
    -> Hello, I am solarus <-
    Good Luck!

    Sol-

    That's not a Cesear Cipher, at least to my understanding of what constitutes it.

    A ceaser cipher is when you shift the letters a certain number in one direction.

    for example, a ceaser -4 cipher would be:

    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    DEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZABC

    My name is moscow

    becomes
    PB QDPH MV PRVFRZ

    I can't place my finger on the name of the code you are suggesting, but it is a valid one, just not THE Cesear Cipher.

    Cheers-
