Boost IT visibility and business value

Our Codebreaker competition has certainly got most of you stumped.

We recently suggested that if you lot had been working on the Enigma code at Bletchley Park, we'd still be trying to bridge the Rhine. That scenario has proved to be hopelessly optimistic. We'd still be looking at the Atlantic wall through binoculars.

If Vulture Central had a pound for every e-mail asking for a clue, claiming that the whole thing is a load of rubbish, or generally whining about how hard the code is, I'd be writing this from an onyx jacuzzi in the back of a Lear jet on my way to Barbados.

That said, some of you are so, so close. Stick with it and remember that the deadline for entries is 5.00pm GMT on Friday 17th November. ®
