Pretty interesting, I didn't realsie they were, after all these years, some messages that weren't de-coded!

Its cool to see that. Actual messages from the past. I remember some site that had newspapers from the past. Im glad they save history. News papers are the best for preserving historical events and images but to also see those codes it brings kinda a feel of an in-moment feel of that event.

I wonder if they have some messages that were encoded with the Sonderschl├╝ssel 100 on their list too.

At least during the war Bletchley Park never managed to break into the special key 100 used by the german Abwehr (Secret Service).

I think these are the only messages that might contain really interesting informations. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Amazing story... and good post. I would like to see if they can crack the other two messages.

Wow. Looking back it seemes that the emigma truly was a emigma if some messenges are still undecoded. And code breaking has goten better if amatures could break a messenge.

Yes, but we are armed with Computers these days that would make any Bletchley Park codebreaker during the war green with envy! Provided the software is there to be able to break the codes!

Bletchley Park is open to visitors and they are rebuilding the first electomechanical computer COLOSSUS

Here is the official site for the M4 Breakers project. (http://www.bytereef.org/m4_project.html)

You can download some software that runs in the background on your PC to help crack the codes. It's not very user-friendly to set up though. Luckily I spotted an article on the website ( here (http://www.bytereef.org/m4-project-blog.html)), which explains how to do an important security change.
