New eBirdseed.com Encryption Contest!
Time we had a new contest... But this one ain't so easy. The picture below is a secret code I wrote for a recipe. (Might help to print it out...) The hints are provided. With the right research and whatnot, this can be cracked in your spare time. (Unfortunately, I didn't have that whatnot, and had to cipher the beast by hand. Still perfectly doable though time consuming...)
So... If you come up with the complete, correct recipe and a valid description of how you broke the code, what will you win? You'll get a quart of my fresh, frozen, vacuum-packed, home-made clam chowder (shipped anywhere in the continental U.S.) and a signed picture of me out on the clam flats wearing a Mickey Mouse hat... I kid you not.
The contest is open to everyone... Employees of eBirdseed.com and their family members are welcome, as are our regular customers and blogites, strangers, wee beasties from Mars... (Yup, only I know the encryption process, and I have absolutely no intention of wearing Mickey Mouse ears for anyone.)
Note: Delivery of prize will depend upon weather and tides. Contest ends 11:59pm EST, 1/24/08
See you by the feeders,
P.S. For what it's worth... It's been a number of years since I created this puzzle. "Aut" is another term for XOR.
