    Hi, Just wondering if we are allowed to use computer programs, either that we have created or ready-made external resources such as the dCode calculator range?
    Also BTW a cool bit of feedback about last year’s challenges: my computer science class had an “Extracurricular day” and the theme was ciphers – guess who won the certificate? Thanks for that!

    [You can use any tools we provide here on the site and anything you write yourself, but use of other people’s codebreaking software would potentially render you ineligible for prizes. We ask potential winners to provide an account of how they cracked the challenge and to send us any code they use).

    You are right, that is very coolabout your certificate, well done! Would love to Tweet about it. Do we have your permission, and can we use your forum name in the tweet?



    Sure you can use the info, and thanks for clarifying about the decoders.
    [Thank you! Harry]


    Hi all,
    Do we have to reregister every year, or do the details carry over? I’ve been reregistering, but that might just be me forgetting my details…
    {You have to re-register as we delete all the accounts every year in line with our GDPR policy. H]
