Challenge "New Year's Greetings — Part 5"  

  By: admin on March 21, 2016, 10:05 a.m.

This series consists of five parts which are based on each other and that will be getting more and more complicated with each part. This is the last part and teaches us something about the weaknesses of this method by improving it a little bit in some points.

The pdf for this part 5 states that the mathematical constant starts with the last digit, which is 6.

Is this correct or should we read first instead of last ?

Thank you.

Hello Integral,
you should read first instead of last (3 is correct), it is a mistake.


Die Zahl, welche auf die mathematische Konstante hinweist, steht
in dieser Challenge natürlich am Anfang und nicht (wie im Hinweis
angegeben) am Ende ! Bitte um entsprechende Korrektur der PDF-Datei.

Das Problem hier ist doch nicht die Beschreibung bei den Hinweisen, sondern das Chiffrat. Eigentlich sollte es so aussehen :

26 (Chiffrat.Chiffrat) 3

First of all thanks for the corrected version.

In my opinion it would be helpful, too, to describe more detailed what kind of solution you expect or will be accepted by the system. I.e. whether single characters and/or abbreviations have to be interpreted here as a 'word' or not. I already tried several possibilities and the solutions are not accepted yet.

Thanks in advance.

thank you for your feedback.
Every single character and every abbreviation has to be interpreted as a 'word', as you say.
Did you enter your solution in capital letters and without spaces?

As an example:
If the solution would be: 'You scored an A. You can find your test inside the ZIP file.'
You would have to enter: YSAAYCFYTITZF
I hope this helps. Of course this phrase has nothing to do with the real solution of this challenge.

Best regards

Humm, only one trial remaining. [HTML_REMOVED]
I have deciphered the cryptogram but i never learned German language. I have understood the message but Google seems not a perfect translator [HTML_REMOVED].
Who can correct or validate my solution ?

Thanks in advance.
