A test for the nerds - March 13, 2009, 12:50 PM

And don't ask me. I am a nerd, but this is Greek to me.

Using the first 100,000 digits of ∏, find the longest monotonic continuous integer sequence starting with the most common digit and use the sequence as the key to decrypt the following code with an alphabetic shift cipher.

wow, that would be some tedious ass shit, that better be the cure for cancer you're decrypting...

of course there's probably some easy trick to it, but short of writing a program, i dont know it.

It decodes to:

"I can't believe you spent this much time decoding this. I'll be waiting outside to beat you up and take your lunch money."
