My name is Ram Rachum, and I'm a Python software developer based in Israel.

This is my personal blog. I write about technology, Python, programming and a bunch of other things.

$50 offered to the first person who solves my encryption challenge

I’m a bit disappointed that no one managed to solve my homebrew encryption challenge.

I’m now offering a modest prize of $50 to the first person to solve it, and deliver the plaintext. Contest rules are in the original post.

I’m also hoping that the winner will produce a write-up of how he figured it out, but that’s not mandatory in order to win the prize money.

Fine print: I maintain sole discretion to decide who is the legitimate winner, if any, and how to transfer the money. (Probably PayPal.)
