Ok, I brought this up in the before but no one could help me. It is at: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=222409
It is in the AO Addicts forum, so I figured I would bring it out here.
A friend of mine sent me an email message. It was encrypted with a program called rot13. I guess it is an old unix program, but I don't have a copy of it. Well, I have spent the last 4 days trying to figure it out, but I just can't get it. Here are the instructions that he gave me for a windows machine:
First, I have to open the file in a text editor.
Second, save the file as a .trp (token ring packet) file.
Third, send the file around our token ring (used for a barcode system). Note, It must run around 13 times (hence rot(ate)13)
Fourth, convert the file back to a text file.
Finally, open the file.
Well, I am having a problem. The file will only go around the ring 11 times before it gives me an error. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? How can I get the last 2 passes?
