Resource: Rot-N Encryption

For today's Resource Friday I'd like to present a resource that you might find helpful not only for general geocaching, but for today's Mission GC Puzzle (obliquely anyway).

Everyone who geocaches is familiar Rot-13, a Caesar Cipher rotated 13 spaces, but there are 24 other variations on Caesar Rotation, Rot-1 rotates just one space so that A becomes B, B becomes C etc., Rot-2 rotates two spaces A to C, B to D, etc.

This website can solve all of the Rotation variations, and it can even make a guess at which to use if you don't know!
