9/22/2003: Added link to the Slashdot thread about the cracking of the Cyrillic Projector code. 15,000 unique visitors just so far this afternoon, whee!

5/25/2003: Added more links to Kryptos info around the web. Additional speculation about Part 3: The out-of-alignment "Y" "A" and "R" letters, being in the upper lefthand corner of that panel of the sculpture, may simply be an artistic reference to the translated code of that section, "...a tiny breach in the upper lefthand corner..."

5/24/2003: Added the (unsolved) ciphertext of part 4 to the page

1/10/2003: Added info about sculptor Sanborn's Cyrillic Projector from the UNC page. Thanks to Bill Houck for the tip!
