Prison is not a nice place to be. Especially when you've been wrongly convicted.

The Officers have sympathized with you, however, and one in particular, a very musical chap, has become good friends with you.

But then today, the Governor - a horrid man who hates prisoners, and also the man who wrongly convicted every single prisoner in the prison - burst in and ordered your officer friend's arrest.

As he was dragged away he shouted this to you:

Remember my password? Keep a record of it! The Governor will go mad but it will change the lives of you and the other prisoners! Traits run in the family!

And then he was gone.

You remember the time he had told you his password so you could hack his computer and try and look up the Governor. His password is

S3 2B3 8C


Can you prove you and your jailmates' innocence?

To get you started:

Your friend didn't like the new cd or earphone methods of listening to music, he preferred using an old record player...

And

Abbreviations

  • $\begingroup$ @Techidiot you are on the right lines with music but the password is the important part here, and the text will help $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Oct 24 '16 at 15:15

Here goes the final answer -

If the numbers in password are ommitted, we get SBC whose anagram is CBS abbreviation of which is Columbia Broadcasting System which can be linked to music. May be he is asking to keep recordings of whatever the Governer speaks or may be he had previous recordings of Governer which all jailmates may use to prove their innocense.

Friend said to keep a record of it Which says its one of the recordings of CBS. Now if the numbers are reversed, we get 8323 Which is a song with Wiki Label CBS 8323 and offcourse a recording of CBS. The lyrics of the song say My daddy was a bank robber. Friend said Traits run in the family So someone out there from the Governer's family still do the crimes of robbing.

So, all jailmates need to come together and blackmail the Governer with this fact and in return should ask him to confess his crimes and leave them all.

  • $\begingroup$ Lol. Not an american so didn't searched for any anagrams for music with the 3 letters. "Columbia Broadcasting System" is what I can get for now. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Oct 25 '16 at 13:03
  • $\begingroup$ you got the first part - now the letters. Think about a keeping a 'record' $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Oct 25 '16 at 13:04
  • $\begingroup$ May be a recorded tape which is proving their innocense. May be he recorded some voices from the Governer in the tape using the old method - "walkman" may be. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Oct 25 '16 at 13:10
