cryptography\cryptology have always fascinated me, from enigma to indigo, I figured this was the best place to discuss cryptograms (as they are technology) be they cutting edge or anachronistic


my favorite are ww2 machine ciphers......

strange, I dont live all that far from Bletchly Park, never been though. The Enigma story is quite interesting, more from a military perspective I think.

yeah.... alan turing got fucked up the ass for being involved in fucking up the ass...... after the fucker was an integral part in saving the world


enigma woulda been perfect too if a letter could have encoded as itself..... the bombe wouldn't have been able to beat it


and in britain are you really all that far from anything? I mean your nation is smaller than my state if I read my map right, perhaps it's just a perspective thing......


you definitly have way the hell more stuff......

I guess by American standards then in Britain nothing is very far. But I do live within about 30 miles id guess. Not right next door I guess but given my interestes possibly close enough.

i find cryptography very interesting, moreso curent methods than those of the past
i actually just took a course in it, and it ended up being my highest mark
i managed to write a paper on the number field seive, which was way over my head, and getting an A on it
