The Fastow Disk
With great interest I read the claim about the solving of the Faistos
mystery. I would like to obtain more information about the solving method
and the obtained text.

Congratulations with your decryption method of the VMs. A similar
helped me solve the mystery of the Faistos disk (see E-mail from
Oct. 8, 1996). I concur that your solution is even more elegant,
as it does not require the use of alternate notations (space) vs. (space)*
This pair of successes makes me confident that the Rongo-rongo tablets
will reveal their secrets soon.
To allow others to study the VMs in this light, I have replaced my EVMT
transcription with a new file, approx. 150kbytes long, by removing the
nulls. I shall be able to E-mail it to those interested.
