    - Figure out the short cryptogram, in which Y = O, B = R, and M = T
    - Figure out why the one cryptogram is backwards
    - Figure out the significance of 001-118
    - Solve the whole darn thing
    Wanted to participate but as always, I don't think I will find anything And if the solution needs you to be good at mathematics........

    There is only one instance of M and no instance of T in the visible puzzle, so yes, I should have said M = T. Sorry about that. Fixed for my recap

    it's based on a text file "dictionary" that doesn't include plural or gerund forms so it's possible that the answer isn't in this list

    on the other hand, sparkle fort.

    This information, true or false, will not help you solve the puzzle.

    This web page allows you to do the same. http://quipqiup.com/index.php change to cryptogram mode, and enter Y=O B=R M=T in the clues. Not a lot of four letter words ending in ORT. FORT, WORT, PORT, SORT, MORT, BORT

    I am feeling like BORT, so I am hitting the WORT.

    Well, see, I know you have access to the internet anagram server. And you figured out Heegan even though Heegan is not a normal English word that would come up in the internet anagram server. So...yeah.

    I also know it's tricky since it's a short phrase and there are so few repeating letters this time around, so does E = C = G help?
