    Almost Gwen-Dragon.
    You cracked the egg, but threw away the content.

    You still have not answered the (oops, miss-spelled) question inside.
    Should be, ⠉⠁⠝ ⠁⠝⠽⠕⠝⠑ ⠑⠇⠎⠑ ⠎⠑⠑ ⠞⠓⠑ ⠊⠗⠕⠝⠽ ⠕⠋ ⠞⠓⠊⠎
    "can anyone else see the irony of this ?"

    cough. Some of us are more gentlemanly and hold-off answering if we get it immediately ;)
    We don't yet know the general level of our current members, so we could get too exclusive very quickly.
    This can be a fun way of introducing crypto to people that don't get it, so try to be educational in the content of your own, and explain how you cracked someone else's.

    Anyway, for now my question still stands :whistle:


  • Moderator

    OK, i cant be gentle-man-ly but will try to be ladylike (or dragonesslike).
    Sorry, next time i'll wait a week until solving ;)



  • Ah ha! I have no idea what you're doing but it does explain something that happened a little while ago. :D


  • Vivaldi Translator

    My apologies Gwen-Dragon.
    It can be difficult to sex a Dragon from a distance, and if you get up close it is usually too late.
    Waiting a day is probably plenty. Just enough so those watching pick up more clues and can join in.

    Well 3Phase this is a cryptic game of find the hidden message, which can also be iteratively hidden in another message or code.
    I started with something common to real-world usage all over the planet.
    Under your nose almost every day, but unused by most of us.
    (Dragons don't need to use it as their eyes are always sharp ;) )

    The message and question are written in a language, which to most humans is a cryptic code.

    I could be way off base too! B)



  • It is Braille? and it fires a malformed request error when searched with google. All i 'see' is little squares where the text should be.
    Here is what i see….."⠠⠊⠀⠞⠓⠊⠝⠅⠀⠀⠊⠞⠀⠊⠎⠀⠠⠃⠗⠁⠊⠇⠇⠑⠀⠃⠥⠞⠀⠺⠓⠁⠞⠀⠁⠗⠑⠀⠞⠓⠑⠀⠎⠽⠍⠃⠕⠇⠎⠀⠞⠓⠁⠞⠀⠇⠕⠕⠅⠀⠇⠊⠅⠑⠀⠎⠕⠍⠑⠞⠓⠊⠝⠛⠀⠁⠀⠉⠁⠇⠉⠥⠇⠁⠞⠕⠗⠀⠺⠕⠥⠇⠙⠀⠙⠊⠎⠏⠇⠁⠽⠀⠃⠑⠋⠕⠗⠑⠀⠊⠞⠀⠺⠑⠝⠞⠀⠞⠕⠀⠠⠎⠊⠇⠊⠉⠕⠝⠀⠠⠓⠑⠁⠧⠑⠝?"




  • Vivaldi Translator

    Indeed, the message and question are written in Braille.

    :( If you are seeing little squares then your browser is not using a Unicode font.
    You can change this in your browser prefs.
    Or it may be that the browser has not chosen UTF-8 to display the page.

    :unsure: Can nobody answer my riddle within ?

    Well done 3Phase, that is the irony I was looking for :)

    Indeed, the problem with this script on a web page, is that the people it is designed for, would not be able to help you, without you helping them.
    Blind people would need to be able to touch it, or you describe it to them :whistle:



  • Did you ever wonder how a blind person can use a touchscreen device like the iPhone? :huh:
    Yep, got it in one: "There's an app for that!" :whistle:

    Oh yes help and kit is available.
    My cousin uses audio cues, as he cannot read Braille
