Why review movies on a Kryptos-focused site?

C’mon guys, why not?

Seriously?

Guys?

Is anybody there?

Okay, honestly I don’t think the audience is that large for Kryptos and anyone who likes ciphers, Kryptos or the CIA will probably be watching the same movies anyways.  The change in media gives us a chance to explore how we can narrowly focus our efforts in on a 97-letter string and in the process greatly expand the scope with which we attempt to find anything at all that will help solve K4 which then comes directly back to those same carved letters.

Let us begin…

‘Tis hard to say, if greater Want of Skill
Appear in Writing or in Judging ill,
But, of the two, less dang’rous is th’ Offence,
To tire our Patience, than mis-lead our Sense
Some few in that, but Numbers err in this,
Ten Censure wrong for one who Writes amiss;
A Fool might once himself alone expose,
Now One in Verse makes many more in Prose.
-Alexander Pope
