Re: Codebusters C

What would be your recommended order of which ciphers to work on first? I’d go hard to easy.

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

I don't know if this has been said already or not, but is the room for codebusters a lecture hall or a standard classroom? I personally really don't like working in lecture halls because of the way our team works together. Any info from either the people running the tournament or have been to the c...

Answer|TODAY, MAMAN(?) DIED. OR MAYBE YESTERDAY; I CAN'T BE SURE Encode the following word (one letter at a time) using RSA with e = 5 and n = 101. TREES You're right.

Re: Experimental Design B/C

Does anyone actually know the rules regarding counts? For example, if I was measuring the period of a spring, and I timed five iterations of the spring (a unit that would be considered “count”) as maybe 1.56 seconds, what would I report as the average time for a period? 0.3? 0.31?0.312?
