Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Comment

Very interesting application, Ian.

I'd love to read your sample message, but whitespace.py bails out after trying to decode the second 6 character whitespace sequence in your message, '\t\t\t \n ', which decodes to ASCII code 286 and thus ord(code) throws a ValueError (which the try..except should prolly catch as well).

The first sequence of 6 whitespace characters (' \t\t\t\t\t') is decodable, it is the letter 'd'.

Should I assume your secret message to be compromised and destroy the plans for the secret project you tried to communicate with me about?

Sincerely,

Agent X
