Resource Friday: American Cryptogram Association Cipher Tools
You can never have too many cipher tools in your tool box, so here is another from the American Cryptogram Association, one of the leaders in cryptography for hobbyists like us. They call this their "Encode-Decode" page. As with all of these pages one of the most important things you can do is simply read through the names and categories of ciphers that they have available and commit them to memory so that when you see a hint towards one of them you will recognize it for what it is. Also, play with the various tools to get a feel for what a piece of text that has been encoding the method looks like.
