Coop reads up on WWII code breaking (hey, it's a hobby), while congratulating:Trying to (re)break Enigma?
From what I read about it, it was a good cryptographic system in theory, but as so often, the flaws where the users. The only real flaw Enigma had and that I can think of was, that it never mapped a character to the same character (ie, it would never map the unencrypted "a" to an encrypted "a" and so on). Why is this a flaw? If you know the word "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is hidden in the encrypted text, then you can rule out any combinations where a single character would be mapped to the same character, making it easier to decrypt the whole text.
Mistakes the users made? Well, of course working the Enigma wasn't really simple, and users are lazy by default. So they used very simple keys to encrypt their messages. Also, being law-abiding germans in the military, man messages contained the words "Oberkommando der Wehrmacht" or closed with the words "Heil Hitler".
Good for us that they wheren't smarter with their encription methods. ^^

As if the English commentary is any better :P
Now that I wouldn't be able to understand. I'm sorry, but one of my characters speaks Eisen (Basically 17th Century Germanic) and if we can communicate to GCSE poor standard, I might be able to get a drama dice for use later in the game. I looked stupid, particularly in front of a guy who got an A for his German... Sure, I looked better than those who couldn't speak a word of it and the accent was alright, but I'm nowhere near how I needed to be for my character.Don't worry, you don't miss anything. German commentators tend to talk a lot of bullshit anyway. ^^
Believe me, it is!

Not once, I will admit that. Don't think they even gave him the opportunity to speak in Italian either.They should also let him speak Greek and Spanish.
But if a man is fluent in so many languages, you should give him the ability to speak them!
And I think he can speak most of them really well. At least his german is REALLY good. He has a slight accent, but if I would just listen to him speaking german, not knowing who he was, I would never guess that it's not his first language.
Ages ago they had chosen Florida. To be fair, it is an expensive place to have a holiday for but why not go with places that are actually exciting?
Well, there's other places I could go as well. They're only after boring places for the most part.Yeah, I know what you mean. Why is it that parents always vacation on the most boring places?
Oh yeah, I have been to Florida once with my brother and my father. We also have been to Scotland. Of course, holidays in foreign countries can be expensive, but we also have been to the german Mittelgebirge 7 or 8 times... now I can't stand that place anymore, lol!
As a dragon, they can understand others alike, although I'm not the one having a flat face on the ground which anyone can walk on.
Maybe I could have reasoned with him better.You might have a point there.
Maybe he uses the feet of tourists to get a massage every once in a while? And maybe he eats one of them every now and then. It's not like the path is used too often, so he could grab a snack if some lone tourists walks around on him.
London? Manchester? Liverpool?
It's actually really really small in comparison to other countries.But still too big to just say: "Hey, let's meet up in England!" without specifying it any further.
London would be the easiest to get to, but it's also really expensive.
Manchester, I have been there already, so I at least know small parts of it already.
Liverpool would be nice, but I guess it's the most difficult place to get to, compared to the other two.
Oh but I do. *resigns*
I have mod aura all the time but you don't see me complaining.But you simply don't have a choice.
