Professor Tomesworthy is one of the brightest and most beloved scholar's in Oxford today. He has recently been involved in some highly secretive research and now he has gone missing! It is truly a mystery that only the most excellent puzzle-solvers could hope to unravel. And that challenge has brought you to Oxford.

You have been given Professor Tomesworthy's research file but it is encrypted behind a security code. Whatever the professor was working on, he didn't want it to be public knowledge!
