6:45 pm - I've had a bit of cryptography fatigue of late. There was always "one more puzzle" that I decided to work on instead of this one as it creeped up my nearest list.

I looked at this one casually a few times to see what was involved, but didn't really spend any time on it.

Last night, I decided it was time. I started working on it and it was a lot easier than I expected. With all the hints given, it practically solved itself! I guess it pays to procrastinate.

I didn't see the worksheet at first, but later I discovered it and found that I was on the right track.

The last piece was a bit tricky, even when I knew what I had to do. When I got stuck, I went over and solved Humpty Dumpty factor immediately. I took one more guess before bed and found the solution. The whole thing took less than 4 hours. I was quite impressed with myself. :-)

Now I was all excited to go claim this 4.5 cache, so I made plans to go this along with some other new local cacehes the next evening.

It was a quick find, especially since Nostrada found it. :-)

Yet another well-executed puzzle by The Rat. I'm sure there's even more levels to this puzzle that I didn't get. Thanks! Posted by jeff at August 27, 2004 06:45 PM
