Remember the strange mail message I talked about? We (that is, me and some persons in the offices around me) are trying to figure out what it is in our free time. Actually, I had already given up last week after spending several hours without getting anywhere, but today, I can report our first success. Guess what? More or less by accident, Bastiaan Heeren (also a member of the contest organization committee) found a picture hidden in the flood of seemingly random data. He says it was encrypted, and that he somehow managed to decrypt it. I do not know the details, but I am not sure he did it right, as it looks really strange. But see for yourself!
