Well, obviously it did. But you could have at least thought not to post this message from the same IP address because that was "too obvious" Wink (even though only admins can see it)

I did not get that hint completly Tongue Still, I managed to break all the codes.

This one was so simple I did not even care about the name, I just guessed the 1-A, 2-B, 3-C, ... mapping and it worked Tongue

Or, another way to look at it, modify the original message mapping to 1-Z, 2-Y, 3-X, ... The result is the same.
Obviously I did figure it out much earlier, but I didn't want to reveal it because it would ruin the fun Wink

"2hours" worked too, for some reason. I guess the website I used just ignores the numbers.

Actually, not only I had fun. A few of my friends had too Tongue
