This con is a randomly selected sentence from the Internet. My Analyzer placed the correct cipher type in 17th place! My hill-climber solved it without a crib, but I am including a Caesar-shifted crib: HUKOVWL. Correction: The first sentence was too short, so my program selected the beginning of another sentence to lengthen it. The second sentence is truncated in the middle of a word.

  1. Two of my ID tests put the correct type in 3rd place and one ID test didn’t list the correct type at all. My hill-climber solved it without the crib. At least I think it did — I found the first 14 words (if you include the hyphenated second word as just one word) of the sentence on the internet, but the final four words looked to be part of another sentence.

    OK, I see your correction so I guess I got it right.
