Task 9

/begin rant

If I may be so bold, I've always considered cryptographers to be some of the cleverest, most creative people around.
Simply running a brief string of text through some online cipher script and posting the output as proof is not particularly clever nor creative, and neither is it "installing a secret message", in my opinionNothing to see here.  Move along.

This task is brilliant! Have fun with it -- don't cheat yourself and post something half-hearted just for 15 points.

I've retroactively done this task. I have put a secret message on this here SFØ website.
It's out there, it's public, and it's very secret.

Go try to find it.
It's not on my player page, any of my completed tasks or any of my comments.
The message is an invitation, a challenge, an opportunity.

I fear for the well being of a friend of mine. Dear Friend, She has made some brash decisions. It seems clear to me that you should get out of there. She has wound up in a situation which I fear for her safety. Do you agree? Do you need my hel...

I recognized SF0 player i am one year old on the elevator in the architecture building one day, but simply saying, "Hey, sfzero player who climbed doe library, I recognize you from the internet," seemed terribly dull, and I wasn't completely sure it ...

My very first task! And I had great fun with it. Secret messages are often right where everyone can see them. They are just not recognised as such. With that in mind I immediately thought of a debate I want to start amongst my colleagues (educati...

There are secrets all around us, but the question is, "Do you know where to look?"

Upon reading this, i immediately thought of an ideal secret message deposit and retrieval area. A wonderland of secret happenings, where the message finder was very likely to be alone & have a moment to read. First, I did some reconnaissance, so ...

Well, I got to work today thinking, "Hmmm, what should I task today?" Open up the old SF0 site and think "YES!!!!!" Such a nice task, and easily doable. 1 hour later my code was safely installed on the message-board at the local M...
