Here we go.

I'm not posting it as an attempt as such but more as an example of how lots of interesting words can appear. As mentioned above I started with uniplus 340 and as something appeared I would lock it if it was interesting enough. I think this one started with what looked like "forced the queen back" then probably the "io" in presidio and I plugged that in then ZKD came up with cabbie on it's own and possibly even some of the letters from heights. The first like I can't remember but it came in pretty close to toschi the copedo and then copoffee. I just reduced it to cop. Sonoma was something like onona maybe. "The shame is" was as is.

Nice effort. Such partial solutions are very tantalizing.

Hitting "gaydirt" must be like hitting paydirt, but with a lot more flourish. :grin:

In order to make sense, it needs anagramming. LOL.

Obviously I mean that as a joke. Having spent something like 10 years now studying old classical ciphers, I can say for certain that I have NEVER ONCE seen any valid solution to any cipher that involved anagrams. It's simply not done.

Yeah I knew about that. I didn't know that it was only 55 out of a 100 though, I thought most people could read it but apparently not then. Can't decide if it's a help or a hindrance though when it comes to staring at the 340 and it's many, many partials. Good I suppose if there's something in it of that nature to be found, not so useful if there isn't.

Trav...I swear to God, your solution reminds me of the prose in James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake:

If you mean gibberish interspersed with words in English then I totally agree. Most partials look like that tho lol.

Found this a nice little succinct thing on the 408 construction.
