Because I wrote something about Digital Fortress in my previous column (in Dutch, over here) I took the book out of the shelf for the first time since I read it while traveling in 1999-2000, to notice for the first time the book doesn't end where it ended for me by then. I know it sounds pretty stupid, and I realise it is, but the paperback version does not end with the epilogue and the death of Tokugen Numataka on page 430.
I probably barely made it to that page by the time, in my tent in Queensland, only to fall asleep, not noticing the lonely line of numbers on page 431:
Well, as it is, feed them to Google, and see what's happening. Only two hits on Dutch pages, but lots of them in English. The answer, not surprising, lies in the Caesarian Box that Suzan Fletcher an David Becker are using to break the code.
Guess I've got to start reading the Da Vinci Code now :-)
