After one year, the code atop of an Adobe Inc. building is cracked
Adobe, very clever (as usual) and witty to boot.
From the SJMercury news:
The code is cracked. And for anyone who thought a simple message was being transmitted by the rotating disks atop the Adobe tower in downtown San Jose, boy, were you wrong. The message of San Jose Semaphore is the entire text of the Thomas Pynchon book, “The Crying of Lot 49.”
The solution was discovered by two Silicon Valley tech workers, Bob Mayo and Mark Snesrud, who received a commendation at San Jose City Hall today.
