Decrypt this sample of ciphertext to an explicitly readable message by any means
that could be also used by Eve in the real world.
Have you given up on the other problem already?

Yup. Looks like it.

Your problem-solving skills look decidedly limited.

No, I'm not being deliberately rude by not answering you but I see no point in pursuing the previous fiasco because that is all it is in terms of non-achievement.

I go for the jugular every time and I don't abide with petulance, one-up-manship , politically motivated emotionally-driven non-scientific drivel that is ruining this group.

No, I think a fresh start is needed to clear the air.

Best wishes - AOB

How do you know? You haven't solved the problem.

Oh, but you do! That is *all* you do.

Lead from the front. Grow a backbone and demonstrate an ability to learn
and adapt. Don't use your age as an excuse.

If you said something like "screw you", It would be more honest.

Zoom in on the plot and spot the space characters.


I'm off to real life.

I spent most of today zooming into real life and creating space on my work desk.

Ah, I missed this.

I have a question about it.

Are you absolutely sure that's correct?

That looks an awful lot like typical AOB copy'n'paste errors.

Nope. His hand-typed PRNG constant lists are full of useful "beacon" numbers like this.

Decrypt this sample of ciphertext
As the real door...



Scrambling parameters of 37 an 39 were used to revel the above plain
text. The pattern in the ciphertext repeats every lcm(37,39) = 1443.

He's gone dark. Methinks a 2-4 month sulk-break has just begun.

That seems to be my overall impression as well.
