    Well, I thought that some you guys might enjoy a good cypher to crack.
    I was going to put two in, but it made the post too long. Don't be put off by the large size, that works to your advantage. If you think you've got it, post the answer in hidden text in a reply.

    If you want more, ask me :smile:

    Here it is:

  4. Aug 4, 2007 #3
    what language is it?
     
  5. Aug 5, 2007 #4
    English, 18th century.

    I've actually forgotten what cipher I used by now, I'll try and dig that up in case you need any more help.

    Got it.

    **** SPOILER ****

    It's The Raven by Poe. You used a Veginere cipher with a 29 letter key.

    **** END SPOILER ****

    Thanks for posting it. I'm a little rusty, but I'd be happy to have a go at any others that you feel like posting.
