Vigenere Cipher Example -- Landsliders puzzle

You'll need to use the Vigenère table to calculate the encrypted text.

I'll walk through the encryption first; decryption just involves working backwards.

WARNING: There are spoilers below about the outcome of the Landsliders puzzle.

  1. Write the phrase you want to encrypt:

GitHub + Kanban

Spent a couple minutes poking around at kanban-like alternatives/supplements to labeling:

GitHub uses this and Huboard internally for some projects. Supported by Rally, so probably not going away anytime soon.

GitHub uses this and Waffle internally for some projects.

Looks interesting. (Marking issues from the command-line? Sweet!) It's also pricey.

Anime recommendations / thoughts

This list is like noob anime central. It's basically like saying, "Do you like jazz? I love jazz! Miles Davis is my favorite!"

(I'm not sure that I actually like anime. I just like anime auteurs like Shinichiro Watanabe, Hayao Miyazaki, Satoshi Kon, etc.)

tl;dr: Watch Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo for a series and anything Miyazaki or Grave of the Fireflies for a movie.


  • Cowboy Bebop (One of the greatest things ever, although the movie was meh. Also one of the only ones I can safely reocmmend in English.)
  • Samurai Champloo
  • Kids on the Slope (I generally don't like "slice-of-life," but I love jazz and Yoko Kanno and Shinichiro Watanabe, so I loved this.)
