GeoGearHeadsFor the one-hundred sixty-fourth edition of the GeoGearHeads Jennifer (author of the "Geocaching Puzzle of the Day") from teamajk answers questions about puzzle caches from the GeoGearHeads audience. The first questions came from tjarrard and Astronaut about what makes a puzzle cache different from other caches. A.Demshar wanted to know opinions about puzzle cache logging etiquette. Limax wanted to know how to determine the puzzle type when looking at the cache for the first time. Anteaus recommended "How to Puzzle Cache" book and wondered if there might be an extra book with more tips and tricks. Jennifer added a "Puzzle Solving Toolbox" post with resources she collected for solving puzzles. A.Demshar then asked for help through the Live Q&A with a play fair cipher while scrapcat wanted to know about a one-time pad. Thavia wanted tips for creating a puzzle cache, to which Jennifer provided a link to information from her recent talk. CraigsOutside called in about using a keyword as a passphrase in his cache. Then LeofricH asked about the process of submitting a puzzle cache to the Geocaching.com Reviewers. billy robson asked about an easy way to find the cache description in the HTML from the cache page. Team_Pugatch asked about the average difficulty rating for puzzle caches. TAZ427 wanted tips for solving puzzles in a foreign language (he's planning to visit last remaining APE cache – GC4ZGHZ). Jennifer suggested using Cryptocrack as it does work in multiple languages. Brilang wanted a tool to determine the steganography encoding, to which Jennifer suggested "Jeffrey's Exif Viewer." Next graywolf5 asked for image search tools. FauxtoPro wanted an opinion about single- or multi-stage puzzles, as well as container expectations. Lastly dsvmusic wanted tips about the container itself.
