Stephen Buxton Veteran user 311 Posts Posted: Jul 18, 2005 05:37 pm    0 No, it's a typo - your correction is the right one. Thanks! So, Stan... what's the answer?

A ROT-1 cipher replaces each letter of plaintext with the letter immediately following it in the alphabet. (Think of the alphabet as being circular. I.e. let the alphabet wrap around and rejoin itself so that A follows Z.) A ROT-2 cipher replaces each letter of plaintext with the letter two positions forward in the alphabet. (A becomes C, B becomes D,...,Y becomes A, Z becomes B.) The always clever Stephen Buxton wouldn't post a cipher that was SIMPLY a ROT cipher, would he? No, no, no....Stephen's enciphered message asks, "How awful is this code?" The particular rot cipher he used to encode it provides the punning answer to his query: "It's rotten!" (ROT-10) Stephen, your contributions to this forum are always original, clever, and interesting. Thanks yet again!

Is there a website that has all these different ways to decipher codes? I.E. the rots, or reverse alphabet. Please PM me if there is. Stephen Buxton Veteran user 311 Posts Posted: Jul 19, 2005 02:51 pm    0 Glad you all enjoyed it!
