Mick F---Surely the part where you say-----A man was seen reciting bad poetry to swans while having 3 cameras around his neck and swearing in nautical terms at anyone whose boat had an IWAI sticker on it is pure fantasy and couldnt possibly be true.smoking smileyMick

Right - I'm off to the attic to dig out me old Enigma machine, if it still works. Can't find any on e-baysad smiley

Is there a solution to all this, or is it all really only an optician's chart? If so, I can read ALL the letters of Tina's bottom linesmiling bouncing smiley No need for specsavers.

Peter, can we go halfoes on the machine, I'm still lost. I think it is something to do with Telegram short cuts and I have found a few on Google, but nothing that decodes properly. Guess I amn't cut out for this decoding stuff.

Hmmmm......

Code 1.........The "key" is in the un-encoded telegrams.....compare and contrast...!!

Code2..........Same "key".....slight twist. Tina gave a BIG hint in her reply...!!

PS.....Remember I'm a Luddite, Les. Dont be getting too technical...!!

Mick, no way are you a luddite. With all the work you have done on the Charts SIG, you won't get away with being called a luddite any more. Anyway, still lost, so when Peter figures it out I'll get him to PM me the answer. Jees, the auld brain is defo going, there was a time that sort of stuff was second nature to me.

Les 41M

Goin down to me boat now, weather fantastic, start up the engine, dewinterise, and get ready for the season.
Re: Telegram from the Wilderness.
25 February, 2012 15:42
But Les.....all the work I've done for the SIG involved using a pencil and paper to extract info, and one fingered typing to input it onto a spreadsheet for onward transmission.

This code only needs a pencil and paper and visual perception to solve...!!

Much, much easier than guess the M-Boat and the awe-struck chiseler...!!

M(W&W)F

PS.....Enjoy the boat...!!

No need for an enigma machine what Mick is using is an ancient written language used by the Dyslexian's it took me many years reading Doctors lines and kids school work to decipher.smoking smileyMick And to any Dyslexians who may think i'm being rude i'd like to apologise to you so here you are CDTG NUIIGH REDFTYU

Hi Peter.
The UL Maths Dept have cancelled all engagements for the weekend and cranked up our Quantum Computing Ting (hosted on an Apple iPad 1 borrowed from an amphibian TSDY driver).

All 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 combinations of the letters in the messages are being systematically replaced by photos of barges.

Our hope is that even if we don't decode the messages we will find PJN on one of them.

Hi Tina.
It looks as if I will have to go for a sail tomorrow to stimulate my cryptographic faculties.

Hope to meet you & W on Derg in a month or two?
