Re: Crime Busters B

I'm curious as to how you guys differentiate between PETE and PVC. When it gets down to those 2 it gets kinda dicey. I know PETE is always clear, and on the CB sheet that the people before me made it said that PVC is never clear. I looked it up, though, and I found a lot of conflicting information ...

Re: Codebusters C

Is it highly likely to actually complete the test? I went to an invitational last week, and we only finished 4 ciphers... (timed, atbash, affine, hill). We were really close to finishing another aristocrat, and I was about halfway through with the vigenere cipher, but... It's feasible but not likel...

Re: Codebusters C

Hey guys! Do you know what the difference between K1, K2, and random alphabets are? I can't find a good definition online. Also, for patristocrats, do you know what method is best to use?
