The Crimson Giant and the Tower of Babel - Bifidus Jones


Cheryl's Giant being stuck somewhere between South Africa and Japan, this is the first page of the book that made it to my mail box. It must have been a very bumpy ride, because the envelope was badly torn apart (and not by a chocolate addict fluxus dog). With apologies from US postal service. That's too bad, I really liked the newspaper envelope, Bifidus.
This is great work as usual, I refer you to Cheryl or De Villo's page for a nice blog post, they are much better writers than I am.
That allegedly very crackable code is still giving me a headache though...

Hmmm, maybe you're right. When Bifidus wrote that it was "very crackable" I took for it granted that each symbol represents a letter of the alphabet. But he might be an evil genius :-)

Marie, this is just priceless. The Crimsoned Giant is generating a tremendous volume of documentation and related items. I haven't deciphered Bifidus's message in the "hieroglyphs," but I think I'm on track to do so. Not meaning at all to be cryptic, but don't think too hard about it. I would say don't underestimate Bifidus Jones' sense of humor or perhaps said another way, to use all means of codification available in an equal way.

My favorite part of the post (given the success of the chapter has been already affirmed by so many of us) is the message from the U.S. Postal Service - that is classic found language - should be considered as part of the whole project, I think.

Lucky the Giant didn't escape!
I'm starting to think that Bifidus will leave us clueless forever...

Cant believe he's still not giving up a clue - and we're going to kick ourselves when he does! I cant believe mine arrived all the way to Africa in one piece - things get eaten by fluxus dogs in little cubicles in postal bags on airplanes by the time they get here generally. I think I'll have to add my envelope to the blog - looks like its one of the intact ones!!
