Geocache Description:


The following paragraph is written in the language '1337' which means 'leet' or 'eleet' aka 'leetspeak' (also '3l337', 'l33t', or '3l33t'.) 1337 is a very complex and changing language primarily because it was first used to get around obsenity blockers in online gaming. Nowadays, however, games have caught up with much of the language so you will not see it as much. Writing in 'leetspeak' is easy, simply replace every letter (or just a few) with symbols that when alone or put together (sometimes at many as eight symbols for one letter if you want to get really complex) resemble the letter so 'Wizard of Foz' could be '\/\/i24(r)d 0|= ]=0z'. Notice not every letter is replaced and there are many different ways each letter can be represented. This makes reading 1337 a very difficult thing to master, but the more you do read the easier it gets. It is also important to note that 1337 is a computer language invented by teenagers so texting words and abreviations such as lol, u, and rly are very much not uncommon. Lists of letter replacements and other helpful tips can be found online in wikipedia and for example. So with all that in mind, give it a try:
