    Default this is especialy for pianoman

    hey pionaman i dont know whether u have ever heard of the dorabella cipher written by Edward Elgar to Miss Dora Penny

    it still remains unsolved i have no clue on how to go about doing this
    but Edward Elgar was a composer who composed first major orchestral works, including the Enigma Variations and the Pomp and Circumstance Marches,

    now this sound too obvious but maybe his enigma variations could be the key now ime not an academic ime sure u dont need me to tell u that lol

    i have no clue why the enigma variations are called such i might be totaly stupid and just proved it lol anyhow just get back to me please oh sorry that this is in the wrong place

    I know some of Elgar's compositions, but I have not looked into the Enigma Variations to see the construction of it.

    I have looked at the Dorabella cipher, and it looks tantalizingly easy as a substitution cipher. But of course it would have been cracked by now.

    Thanks for the project. I'll look into the Enigma Variations, but it probably will not hold any keys for the cipher itself.

    Default lol i dont thinkso either

    i dont expect there to be any link between the two either to be honest
    but as i said i dont know the reason behind them being called the enigma variations and its a very longshot to assume that theye have a correlation between themselves and the cipher you dont have to waste your time on it more than anything i just wanted to know what your thaughts were

    thx
