I'm guessing it's GCHQ or NSA or a.nother shadowy government organisation on a recruitment drive.

The next puzzle will be released on Jan 4 - I know a few guys who are taking time off work to get onto it (and yes they are proper geeky nerdy hacker cryptographer types)

The Fear

A Wise Man (once sat next to him)
Funny old world we live in.

Luckily I'm far too thick for puzzles so will leave well alone!! I need straight forward logic to operate.

Reference to Silence of the Lambs apparently, rev (although that was a moth), and something to do with the fact that they emerge every 13, or 17 years to avoide their predators...

What significance that has, i have no idea

As i say, all very intriguing to me
