Re: The CipherCafe: Have a Slice of Riddles & a Cup of Code

Ugh. The hint "qwerty keyboards" gets me nowhere in that other cipher. VMMCC doesn't look promising for a one-to-one cipher; COOEE fits, but leaves everything else looking like crap. I also know it's not a Playfair cipher because VMMCC CL can't arise from that. For ChewyChewy, some theories: Celsius...

Re: The CipherCafe: Have a Slice of Riddles & a Cup of Code

Let's try this again.

k+n=3
k+l=6
m=1
l+n=5

(k,l,m,n)=(2,4,1,1) or (6,0,1,5). The first one would be represented by 1++ 2++++ 3+ 4+, and the second would be 1-- 3+ 4---. The second one uses fewer 45-degree turns.

Re: The CipherCafe: Have a Slice of Riddles & a Cup of Code

Let's give link 1 k clockwise rotations, link 2 l clockwise rotations, link 3 m clockwise rotations, and link 4 n clockwise rotations. Then ring 2 will have been rotated k+n times, ring 3 k+l+n times, ring 4 l+m+n times, and ring 5 l+n times. Since these rings need 3, 6, 1, and 5 clockwise rotations...
