Enigmatic Code

Programming Enigma Puzzles

2014 in review

Happy New Year from Enigmatic Code!

There are now 763 Enigma puzzles on the site. There is a complete archive of all puzzles published from 1979 – 1983 and also from 2004 – 2013. Which is about 43% of all Enigma puzzles, and leaves just over 1,000 to add to the site.

In 2014 I added 182 puzzles to the site – here my selection of the ones I found most interesting to solve programatically:

Older Puzzles (1982 – 1983)
Newer Puzzles (2003 – 2005)

Of course the most challenging problem of 2014, but certainly not the most fun, was getting a phone line and internet service at my new house. But I did manage to keep up with the posting schedule (although somewhat erratically) during the 3 months that I was without internet access.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the site by adding their own solutions (programmed or otherwise) or their insights and questions.

Here is the 2014 Annual Report for Enigmatic Code created by WordPress.

    Keep up the good work, Jim.

    I know your main object is to come up with efficient program code, but what I most appreciate is your analytical insights; also solutions that are more complete than the single numerical value that one was usually asked to submit. Those Enigmata would have been so much more worthwhile if a few words of explanation had been given when the solution was announced a few issues later.

    Oh, and there’s no need to hold back with criticism of the wording of some of the puzzles!

    2×19×53 adieu. Welcome 5×13×31 and another 180 or so puzzles to add to my collection.

    ……. Hugh
