Yeah, putting 75 on a 50 cent coin isn't at all confusing.

If you're in the UK the museum/exhibition at Bletchley Park is well worth a visit. Lots of history and explanations of how they worked, the impact they made and the history of computing.

Pro: The tickets last a year, so you can go back as many times as you want. There's quite a bit to see.
Con: F*ck me the food is expensive. Two ordinary cups of tea in a self serve cafe in Starbucks type paper cups cost £5.40. Take snacks and drinks.

Well it helps that there is no such thing as a 75 cent coin.

Are you required to solve the 4 codes with traditional methods or can you just get a copy of the answers by charming the agency receptionist?
