    Default 62-10+21+79/17+38+153-57*79+17-38-4

    Iíve been asked if I wanted to put an old puzzle here to see if anyone could come up with the answer. Itís been in my signature for years and on my website and to date no one has come up with the solution.

    I used to study cryptography and the art of the cipher and this was just a simple code with a simple message and I was surprised when none of my old cryptography acquaintances could solve it. It came up in chat the other day and it was suggested I present it to the Tweleve forum as people here seem have higher than average intelligence. Iíve encoded many things in the past and never know if it will get cracked the first day or drag on for months. I canít give any hints or clues without giving it away.

    Is there a prize? (looks frantically around desk, finds object, then scans it) How about a nice slide rule?

    So, here is the code, just like in my signature. As a bonus, the title is also a code, but I guess youíve figured that one out by now.

    Though I'd add that if you are confident you can post your solution here or if you don't feel confident you can pm me here or send an e-mail to starthinker@yahoo.com. Oh, and here's the slide rule....

    I remember many moons ago when I stared at the stars' sig and pondered the potential of plain lines and parted lines. If only my memory would serve me, I would remember if I solved it then, unlike now...

    (Hi, Star! Been awhile. So good to see you!)

    Thanks for bringing back this puzzler.
