  • Secret Codes

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

    http://www.armoredpenguin.com/cipher/

    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.

    You will find puzzles of this sort in some of the puzzle magazines.

    Have fun, but don’t use this for anything except entertainment. It isn’t that good of a code.
