For this contest, I want people to focus on how clever, intelligent and original the code was. Remember to vote 10 for your own entries, and a fair score for everyone else.

You should also decide as to whether the puzzle is indeed solvable by hand (with the aid of the usual tools, of course), and the ability to reproduce the original message 1 for 1.

If you want to comment on the entries, other than questions, remember to put it in [unhidetime=08/04/2009 12:00 PM]Your hidden text.[/unhidetime]

Your hidden text.

"Ad Hoc Shift Cipher" and "Cross Shuffle" contain the symbols [ b ] and [ u ] respectively. You need to edit your post to stop those being interpreted as the bold and underline tags.

I'm abstaining from voting for this contest as I haven't had time to attempt to crack any of the codes.

NiroZ just has to use [lb] and [rb] instead of left and right brackets when they appear before or after the letters "b" and "u" in his post above. (Thanks RoboBob3000 for teaching me that a while back.)

It looks like Shade's 25-minute code and Neather2's second entry, simple entry are missing from the poll. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible, since it makes the poll pretty useless.

Yeah... as you can probably guess, it's a song. Which I was addicted to for a couple of days. It's got an awesome video clip. (yes, it's shawnshank redemption)
