You mention Bruce Fraser's books as well and I agree. But speaking
of Fraser if you're not using his Pixel Genius products you're

tool called RSA Gray Balance that now is part of my workflow.

RSA? As in public key crypto? Or was I the only one to trip over
this acronym?

That's 'Rule Seeking Algorithm' not Rivest, Shamir, Adelman.

OT - xbytor - have you read "The Code Book" by Singh?

Of course! No self-respecting cryptologist would have skipped it.
Others may not have found it quite as dramatic as I did,l though.
My GFs still wonder why I ask them to mention "Linear B" at "key"
moments :-).

Did you participate in the challenge?

And of course, if you did, did you figure out stage 5?
