That code

Okay Bernard and I have obviously had to start moving every so often, but that's okay, it's just like the old days. We've managed to not run into Cavan, or really anyone else for that matter, on our travels, so that's good at least.

We decided, just in case he decides to encode his messages again, to figure out what kind of code Cavan used on the posts he made on our blogs.

It was pretty simple once we sat down and thought about it. Like he points out in his newest post, Cavan did a pretty simple cipher where he used a keyword. In this case, the word around or 'a round' depending on what he meant, but anyway, you line it up with an alphabet and after writing the final letter of the phrase, continue writing the alphabet, leaving out letters you've already used.

like this:

a r o u n d b c e f g h i j k l m p q s t v w x y z
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

the message on our blogs say:

"It just never ends.
once more let us dance ahain.
we cannot let it."

So yeah there's a typo in the message, and I'm fairly certain that he just did that to mess with us, but yeah, just a greeting really.

Glad we were able to figure it out though, I'd rather know what he's posting than just ignore it.

As for the post on his own blog, the keyword was Bernard's name, so Bernard Laguardia, or bernadlgui for the keyword cipher, and the message comes out as:

"This story just never seems to end.
You're trapped in an endless loop of death.
I can free you."

Well fuck you too Cavan.

Anyway I'll try to keep up to date as things happen.


(D is asleep right now... as weird as that is as a concept, and I thought I'd let him get some rest while I make this post.)
