    I was given a cipher challenge that has me a bit stumped.

    A lot of the challenges I'm given are multi ciphers, but I can't get past step one yet for this one (my friends can get devious). The first clue is:

    _ _ _ . _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . _ _ _


    I know it isn't a latitude or longitude marking. It isn't a web address. It isn't a phone number. I was thinking Morse Code or Ascii, but that hasn't yield anything yet

    Has anyone see a set of numbers / words displayed in this format? I know its a vague clue, but I was just curious if anyone had a thought about the format.

    I would guess Morse code and then some sort of Caesar-like transposition cipher.

    Perhaps the first clue cannot be looked-at in isolation?

    There might be a pattern in the clues, which will help with the first one. :confused:
