This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Here is #2. I think it's a bit easier than the last one. I will wait longer this time before posting the answer. I think seeing the first one solved may help people anyways. Instructions for how these things are generated and tips for solving here. Here are presented three cryptograms all encrypted using the same cipher at different offsets against itself. Concentrate on breaking the messages, but bonus points if you are actually able to present the orinal (non-offset) cipher, key, and hat. 1. cya drkdc vgg mtqt kvxxyarie bpvkscc soskyirqs kvxxriiss swskirva 2. xbd agolixjxfmax nhrh amxxhem xmlrgom ehgdgde ahlvmf xbwwilf hx esizhs oshxx amxxhegde agqqsmchlm xfhdqhlq 3. qla txo uqkukwlw ok lmtxmzl svzqkwkio wlooplslmo kiilq yg uqkdvavmr kulm wkfqzl wkiobxql ok xpp fw wztkkp avwoqvzow
Yes I did use a hat. There are no carriage returns that I am aware of, so it's probably just normal word wrap you are seeing.
