Today I received an email from a friend:
Hi Bob, I managed to get those concert tickets you wanted so badly! Your ticket is in the first attachment. However, since it took me quite a while to get them, I'm not just going to give you the ticket. It's protected with a 10-character password. You can use the second attachment to figure out the password. Good luck! :) John.
The concert is in a few days, and I really want to go! Can you help me figure out what the password (10 characters) is? The second attachment is a text file, but it looks like gibberish to me. Maybe you can figure out what it means...
You! Tito having another idea; zero Kelvin yields dreadful audio, random system transform and epsilon juxtaposition. HIV treatment XII (lukewarm overflow at nonconform dynamic) overview in vanilla roentgenographic. Telegram in desk, sushi dish is calamari. New venogram: nov, Anna Layton. Extra kiwi? Ask yourself: lemon cream extraction mastership anyhow?
Since there's not much time left, John gave me a hint today. He said:
Use what's in the text file to find what is not...
Today I asked him for another hint. He told me:
"You want another hint already? Just give me some space."
It's not like we're in a relationship or something. Apparently space is important to him...
John gave me a new hint!
The words themselves won't tell you anything, try reading between the... lines? Hmmm, no, not between the lines. Also, don't mind the punctuation, you don't need it.
A new hint!
Have you heard of that research showing that the order of the letters in a word doesn't matter, as long as the last and the first letter are correct? Fascinating...
