As I said in my phone post, I'm in Ft. Lauderdale, feeling much better and looking forward to the cruise! Seawolf just called and Zot is talking to him; he's currently in Atlanta, on the way here. He'll get here about half past midnight, which is unfortunately about a quarter hour after the last hotel shuttle runs. Maybe he'll need a taxi!

Shortly after I got here, we all went out to look for food and went to Miami Subs and had gyros. Yum! Then Zot went to a liquor store to get little bottles of alcoholic stuff.

Oh, and apparently there are no less than eight cruise ships departing tomorrow! All the hotels around here are full. We've got a sofa bed and a rollaway bed for me and Seawolf, but officially we can't use them both. So we'll use them both but not tell anyone.

That's amazing. Thanks to you, cargoweasel, chipuni, and ceruleanst, I've learned so much about cryptography and orthography.

I looked at your icon and immediately thought, naval letter flags, hey, it's KT's Furry Cruise icon. 1,2,3 ... 1,2,3 ... it's a Kinky Turtle icon so it's probably "Yig-Ped"; now, which is Yig and which is Ped? Well, there's that gaudy diagonal striped one at the start of one group, and everything else is simple blocks; must mean that one isn't very commonly seen; the only seldom-used letter out of "D,E,G,I,P,Y" is "Y" ...

thanks for teaching me something. :)

All depends on how "commly used" is defined.

The common order, as per Wikipedia is:

EtaoInshrDlcumwfGYPbvkjxqz - "yig-ped" letters capitalized.

So, actually, the most seldom used letter is "p", which also starts one of the group of 3 in "yig-ped". Strangely enough, thoguh, you did guess right with the diagonal one being "y" and the way you did it was quite ingenious!

(Interesting, when I was a kid I memorized / got stuck in my head, the frequency of letters was etaonrishdlfcmugypwbkvxjqz, slightly different from the above. Of course no one who plays Wheel of Fortune seems to know either list. I should go on that show and clean up!)

Miami Subs brings back memories....there was an all-night Miami Subs just around the corner when I used to live in (big surprise) Miami!
