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