News: NOTICE:  I attempted the upgrade of the forum software today but it failed and I had to back out.  It turns out the forum software needs a newer version of some infrastructure software so I have to request the ISP to install that.  I should be able to upgrade again in the next few days.  Sorry for any inconvenience due to downtime but it should not be down long.  Thanks.

Code Breaking 150+ Year Old yankee Telegrams
« on: September 29, 2016, 07:18:37 AM »
All,

Every time you think that it has all been discovered, something like this happens!

It has become my view that there is always more information "out there" to be found by those who look hard enough!

Would love to see an article in the NSTCW or similar describing what has been found.   Probably just way too much and too hard to read outright which is why the request for public assistance.  Thanks for sharing.  Hope there will be some comments that help answer some unanswered questions for the historians and collecting community.
Best,
Carl
