Re: Delurking (was Re: VMs: Further investigatio of folio f1r)

Hello illumin8,

by coincidence, I like Bacon cipher -  it has pure binary organization which 
surely put in wrong our underestimation of the old cryptography. He chose 5 
bits, since 5th power of 2=32, which was needed for the whole alphabet. It is 
also a steganography, he was hiding the message in miniscule differences of the 

There may be some steganography hidden in the VM - apparently some research was 
done before, but some may be still needed.

Best regards.  Jan
