Phone Number Code

I know it's been quite a long time since I last posted. It looks like this blog has been left on its own. I was actually checking what my blogs are so I paid a visit. Hmmm....now I thought I should update.

But I just could not update with nothing about ciphers, crypts or codes so I thought for a minute (literally) of a new set of coding system that may look difficult but quite decipherable. Again, the purpose of such is so that it would be difficult for those unaware to get the message when, for example, a piece of paper was passed from point A to point B and with those unaware in between A and B, yet easy for those concerned to read it with relative ease (with some practice, of course) without having to get a pencil.

Here's an example of a message:


Clue: It's just one sentence.

C5 Reveals The Secret To Deciphering The Dots, Dashes And Slashes

Yes, I finally decided to reveal how the Dots, Dashes and Slashes work.

Yes, there is a pattern. I almost always use a pattern when creating ciphers. The only time I don't like (or prefer not) to pattern is when I make crafts.

Since I don't have much of a strong memory, this hobby tells me I need to pattern.

It's actually VERY EASY. It might surprise you how easy it is.

Imagine a tic-tac-toe grid. Two of them. And an X. Two of them also.

In the first tic-tac-toe grid fill up the spaces from A-I like this:


Then on the 2nd grid, letters J-R:


Then on the 2 Xs:




Now imagine the first grid. 'A' is in the left-facing right angle. Get the points and turn into dots.

'B' has 4 ends but turn it into 3 by making a vortex like a 'V' so you have 3 dots in the form of a 'V' actually.

'C' faces the right like an 'L' so you just get the points and make dots forming an 'L' (can you see where it's going?).

When you reach letter 'E' that is represented with one dot at the center.

Are you following?

When it comes to the second grid, change dots into dashes.

The Xs are a bit different.

S is like a double quote
T is slanted to the left
U is slanted to the right
V is like an equal sign

From W to Z, just insert a dot at the center like W would be like |·| :)


Now you can amaze your offline friends....or enemies :D

Reviving My First Love

I know it has been a very loooooong time since I posted here and I even have not posted much before taking a break.

I've been busy hatching other blogs that I seem to have left this without warning.

I didn't mean to. Crypting has been one of my hobbies. It's my first love among hobbies, so to speak. I've created several but since I don't use them much, I've forgotten most of them. Only the handful "good" ones are still intact. "Good" as in they are not easy to decipher under untrained eyes but easy enough for the trained eyes that you can just read through the code to get the message and you don't have to write what you decipher so others can see what you're writing, otherwise the code is useless. What if the person who just glanced upon what you wrote down as the message is a double-crosser? Ahh...too much espionage, I guess. :D

Anyway, I just would like to let you know I'll be back to regularly post in this blog. I'm just thinking of something that can breathe life into it. :)
