ATTN: CREATOR OF ENIGMA BOINC SOURCE CODE

In brief: About 20 years ago, a man murdered more than 30 people, one at a time, in creative and horrific ways. He narrowly escaped arrest, and has never been identified or found. He did radio interviews, and sent 2 encoded letters about himself to newspapers... Only the first was ever cracked. The second, he claimed, contains information about his identity.

The code is written in shapes and symbols, and is 1 page long. That's all we know about it.

Can you do what the American FBI and the police could not? Fame awaits, more so than through Enigma!

Let me know.

Very interesting stuff!

It may be a code, or it may not be. He may have simply been messing around. If he made a mistake himself the code would be meaningless.

You can always create your own project to crack it. ;-)

(Or find a PhD student to do all the hard work for you)
