I only recently learned that there was such a thing as online code breakers. Here I had been doing all of them by hand!

Has anyone else run into problems getting the xzing site to come up? I keep getting one of those "cannot find" screens and the cached pages don't work. I have one of these that the online reader just can't decode. Thanks!

And Becca, I was decoding things by hand for a long time before I figured this out. Some I still do, but these types aren't among them! I enjoy the ciphers and will hand decrypt as much as possible before trying the online things. They remind me of my linguistics classes in college, which I enjoyed.

Well Chris, I'm not sure some of yours can be solved any other way than by the headbanging approach, right???? Blink

I noticed that the other day the zxing seemed to be gone. Not sure what happened but the based code is still there on google in the code development section.

Here's an alternate website that lists some options:
