Holy.....did I get it???
When the end of your quest
Sends you back to
Gather it's lessons
For the record, I got absolutely ZERO done at work today.
Here's what I did.
I've been gone a few days, so first I went back and checked out the clues (although so help me, I didn't see the I=E clue until too late).
First, as with Bipolar, I just dropped all the lower case letters.
Then, Using the "numbered" clue, I divided up all the letters accordingly:
Counting letters, I had the most so I made that E
Looking for patterns I saw TCI twice. Again, in Bipolar, Static used the same letter to substitute for the same thing, so I made TCI=THE
After that, it was brute force for a while, concentrating on the 2 and three letter words. The first was TH, which I assumed could only be TO.
Having H solved for helped me place S for X (using the FIXXHEX string) just because it made more sense than a lot of other letters that went there.
This went on for a WHILE. I used the smaller words to help me figure out the bigger words.
So, what do you think?
static, if I'm right, were you drinking when you made this up? I need one (or 7! and a pack of hair dye to cover the gray!) after working this out
EDIT to put the cipher in italics for easier readability
