  • Secret Codes

    Posted on February 27th, 2013 admin No comments

    I’ve added a new puzzle, one that generates Secret Codes. See:

    The idea is that you type in a series of words or phrases, and the letters are substituted for other letters based upon a key. You can have a very simple (almost trivial) code known as a Caesar Cipher, or you can make it harder by randomly shuffling the alphabet. It can be even harder by having a longer key length.

  • Microsoft docx files

    I’ve gone through and added code so that you can now load Microsoft Word files with a *.docx file type.
    This should make it a little less error prone to load files.

  • Status of new server

    The new server has been in place for about a week, and seems to be holding up well.

    The new server has several times the CPU power of the old server, plus much more RAM.
    I expect this has helped with performance.

    If you see any lingering problems, please send in a bug report.
