Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. All my ID tests unanimously got the correct type. Hill-climber solved it without a crib. I’ll include a caesar-shifted crib.

  1. I’m busy working on the new Cm issue, but I took time out to solve this one. My programs identified and solved it without the crib.

    1. Have you received the ND2019 CM? I usually receive it a day or two before the end of the month. Not this time. Don’t know if they were mailed later than usual or problems with my mail. Thanks,

      1. I haven’t received the ND 2019 issue either. I did download the digital version though. I found the CE column quite a challenge since I didn’t know the cipher types or any cribs. I’ve solved 22 of the CE ciphers. I may get 2 more, but the other 2 will have to wait for cribs.

  2. I received mine around the 29th. I completed solving it yesterday. I have no idea why the magazines don’t arrive all at the same time. If you post which cons you need cribs for I’ll post CAESAR enciphered cribs to those.

      1. E-9 puzzles it shows.
        E-26 ends: “they are immortal stars”
        Obviously these are not Caesar-enciphered because they weren’t in the magazine.
