Post Didactic Vampire Text Reply with quote
Iīm wondering about this challenge.

There is a good reference to the text and i think, that the only diff is only one char in one word.

But the trial with each char, like each complete words, were wrong... Wink

Any (useful) hints?

Thanks.

Look at how it's written, rather then what is written.

Hmmmm... Thanks for the hint.

But it took me not in the right direction...

Iīve tried it with "challenge", "upside down", "past" and "red".

No chance and no more idea.... Evil or Very Mad

One more hint please Very Happy

It's not so difficult to figure the solution to this challenge.
You don't even need any programming skills, you don't need google, you don't need anything.
How old are you?

it's a crypto challenge, analyze everything that looks suspicious

and yeah, you dont need programming, but a small program woould make it faster to solve (or even just a regex)

yes, a small program would always Help, but only if you know what you Are looking for.
otherwise you sould know expert's teChnics and have great programming sKills to makE a progRam that thinkS instead of you.
anyway, in this challenge, theRe is no need to use a really crypto / Uncryptoing technique.
you onLy need your Eyes and nothing else to find out the solution.
Sorry broker for my previus reply. just use your eyes and find it out.
it's not so difficult. What else can i say? hackers rules

The last hintīs were definitively helpful, so i found it - at last. Laughing

All - or most of us - want to get a sense of achievement...
We want to solve the challenges, without getting the result directly!

But if you search in the wrong direction itīs very hard.

@chriskag:
No problem, i am old enough to ignone words like these Cool. But very polite to apologize.

Thanks to all Very Happy

has anyone tried to search the solution by a little program ?

would be interested if my way of doing it is nearly as efficent as others ...

i tried it with javascript ...


I would convert all letters by ascii to hexadecimal numbers and axtract all which are between 41 and 5A ...

other (, easier) possibilities ?

This is a VERY easy challenge if you look at it right. Simply look at each word in turn and see if it looks different to the way that all the others are set out.

Hope this helps without revealing too much.
