With a tip of the hat to Dave Oranchak’s zodiackillerciphers.com (where I saw it mentioned), the cipher news du jour is that hyperbullish tech magazine Wired has just posted a nice article giving the inside story on how the various collaborators all played their part in cracking the Copiale Cipher (which I covered here and here). I particularly relished the picture of the Oculist blindfold (a blindfold with lenses? Really?), but everyone’s different, right?
Anyway, no need for any more snarky comments from me, it’s a perfectly good article, so go and enjoy it!
