A nice clever little cypher. But totally useless here.
For this is Meaningless Drivel

Also since this seems to be a secure channel, a secret message for you :-

Ooooh, Sahir, you too...
I wonder how many Russain spy we have here...
That�s why your face looked so familiar! Of course. Moscow 1990, KGB school... You guys lived isolated in building15, but we met in canteen. Remember, somebody put salt in your tea?
Rest of my message is totally secret.

You think so? Hehehehe. He is a threat to the motherland, we must inform the political commissar.

Incidentally, do you know someone I know or is my imagination playing tricks on me. You know who I am talking about? Short feller with a drooping moustache. A sort of jack of all trades. Drinks like a fish. Used to teach some esoteric branch of Chemistry at Patrice Lumumba(That must be news to you. I am sure he wouldnt have told you that). So did he land up in SSU when they sanitized the place ? I heard they changed it's name. What do they call it now ?
Cheers Sahir
PS. You didnt comment on the secret message. What do you think ? Am I right ?
As Jim said in this thread "sometimes a person's style sticks out like a sore thumb". I see a Chong flavour in his diction.
Yet I feel you are not convinced because *+,-$^u| ujlrp&P bo#Wyk}if"Neqonit"-./01*+,-.
PPS. Lets see who pops up asks "Are you guys talking about me?"

Now you totally confused me. Cindy has a degree in Chemistry, but I guess "drooping moustache" point to someone else Also you use "he" to refer to this another Russian spy. Hm. Must be your sacred enemy Tintin.

Well, if to consider your second "secret" (ha!) message, you are 100% right Errr, I mean you are right if I am right, but I am now less sure that I am right. Your relationships with S. are too complicated.
As Jim said in this thread "sometimes a person's style sticks out like a sore thumb"
That's good that he finally developed his intuition to the point where he doesn't need to look up IPs any more. Paradoxically, but this is much more reliable way to detect identities. People can fake their IPs, but faking personality and behavior patterns are more difficult task. Not to say that most do not bother to do that - and become easily detectable. Examples include Conrad, Nanjangud and, of course, Sahir
I see a Chong flavour in his diction.
No wonder. Chong made such a deep and profound effect on this forum, that we all now have something common with Chong in our personality.

And this is even more offensive. For Russian spies the most important sort of love is love to their motherland.
Eager Beaver�s post definitely should be edited. For example:
"Hey Sahir,

Obviously, that ploy will only work on a bartender or sheriff someone who can't read it - since of course we know there's nothing offensive in my message. Such a person, lacking the time or desire to decrypt this nonsense, might well simply decide (correctly) that non-english posts aren't allowed anyway, and therefore this whole series must be purged. Why you would want to tempt fate, under these circumstances, is a mystery to me.

Well, for one thing I am playing with Perl now and badly needed something to practice on. Sahir's cryptography was a damn attractive opportunity and just in time . But how did you say that it is non-English since of course we know it is perfect 100% English? Though slightly offensive one.

The posts are not in English. They can be decrypted to English, but are not posted in English. And of course, the hypothetical third party in this case doesn't know if the post decrypts to English or not, and doesn't care.
"Perfect 100% english"? Well, maybe Sahir's posts, and mine, but... [ducking for cover...]
Studying Perl now? Nooo! Study Python instead. Much more readable, and it integrates nicely with Java as well. OK, it certainly can be useful to be conversant with Perl also - but give Python a try. Highly recommended.

Hey, I meant your post!
Kidding! I am not I was at your remark.
Python? Maybe. Or Ruby. Probably integrates well with Japanese...
I do not really learn Perl, just curious what it is good for.
Ok, as one wise man said , �it is time for both parties to retreat for a while and lick their wounds�

You mean "with love"?
Be careful, I am a married man. I already got into trouble once for trying to flirt with Angela.

Well, I am afraid good spies are quite unromantic, true... But not all spies. For example, why do you think it took Jim so long to crack the cypher? He studied in the same KGB school with me and Sahir, but started one year after. Usually KGB students are severely disinterested in what younger folk is doing, but Jim's story was famous. He somehow managed to receive exemption from attending cryptography class, under pretence of necessity to work on his shadowing skills and spent whole days on Moscow streets. Then it turned out that he simply had a love affair with a salesgirl in the central toy store. Our professors were furious. That's why he got here instead of more prestigious work in Uganda.

What? "Its OK to call Map a kid?" It's not OK. I am older than Jim. That's why I said his post uses offensive language and should be censored.

Hey Sahir,

And of course, Thomas' definition is more relevant to the Python programming language, because it's the one that Guido was thinking of when he named the language. But let's face it - how likely is it that O'Reilly would put a copyrighted Monty Python image on one of their covers, when other options are much more consistent with the standard look & feel for O'Reilly?
Hmmm... they really need to put out a book on Jython (formerly JPython). There are several cool species (1, 2) to choose from...

So now these are you favourite animals, Jim... Why am I not surprised?

P.S. Couldn't resist temptation to steal the first picture � that "protected" by copyrightish JavaScript...
P.P.S. Now I insist on disabling accounts of all (including former) Arizona residents. They are extremely dangerous.
