secret message... i just cant figure it out! help!

Recommended Posts

That's awesome, but rather impractical seeing as even a marginal error could turn the last thousand books into gibberish.

Yep. That's why I myself am skeptical of the practicality of it. But hey, if computers can count atoms, why not!

M E O R S I is an anagram for: isomer moires and rimrose

not rimrose, there is only one 'r'. it could be i'm (a) rose... but that's kind of stretching it.

By separating the number up into 229, 23, 248, 197, 198, 216, I found the 229th letter of the alphabet and so on for the others, forwards and backwards. I came up with;

U W N O P H going forwards and F D M L K S going backwards.

And that means nothing to me, atleast it's one more line of investigation eliminated.

Is 197 prime?

Why does it start with a zero?

Assuming each set of three is one unit creates only six units; is that enough to tell a secret?

Is 197 prime?
yes

I suspect that this great man's observation is now centuries old. It was probably the first conception of compact data storage, since before computers ever existed.

ffsjoe, did you try using 230 instead of 23? i think that's the intended number.

ok' date=' my friend told me had a secret and that it was hidden in this message:

022902300248019701980216

the only hint he gave me was that the 0's were dividers.

i thought i figured it out, but he told me i was wrong...

here's what i got

a +1 +18 -51 pattern

and if u hold alt and type the #'s (including 0's) on aim it makes a pattern

i have NO IDEA! anybody got any better ideas?? [/quote']

The package is in route and will be delivered monday, 8-29-2005.

k ill try 230 when i've got some time, need to duck out atm

Edit: going forwards 230 would be V and backwards it would be E

try using the declaration of independance. i've seen it used before. you take the number and look up the corresponding word. eg 86 = whatever the 86th word in the declaration is.

insane alien, that's a good idea. but then you might have to check hundreds of documents as well, as theoretically it could be any well-known document. also, i think the similarities between the numbers might be too great for something like that...

Maybe when the person said zeros are dividers, that person meant the two zeros that are together

so you get two words or something? :

0229023

sorry that was uncalled for. bad jowrose

we're a little off topic arent we? anyone have any new info on that code? whoever started this thread (i forget) should just hit their friend over the head and make them tell us. its bothering me.

Share on other sites

its bugging me too, i hope his friend didnt just give him a bunch of random numbers for a joke cos I really want to know the answer

Share on other sites

isuit, go make your friend tell us.

Share on other sites

Isuit. Before I spend any more time on this code, to which I am already pulling my hair out over, was your friend serious? I am wondering wether your friend is intelligent enough to come up with this code himself or if he was just screwing around. I've tried everything!!!!!!!!!

oh if isuit just left, i'm gonna be mad. i gotta find this out... if anyone has ever listened to lewis black's "rules of enragement" they know what i'm talking about.
