    I'm new to this site.

    My name is 11 73 3 33 (that's some kind of science-related cipher, and it has something to do with my real name. if somebody wants to try to figure out what it means - you're welcome Oh, and it's a feminine name, if it can help).

    I'm 18 years old, and I live in Haifa, Israel.
    I'm beginning my studies on the physics faculty in the Technion next semester.
    My interests include mostly science and math, but also SF&F, anime, languages etc.
    And yep, I'm a geek :wink:

    (By the way, as you perhaps can see, my English is not very good for it's not my native language, therefore I apologize for possible mistakes ).

    Your forum seems very interesting!

    Welcome :wink:

    Decyphering your name looks like a nice challenge, but I don't really know where to start :P Oh and which languages are you most interested in? I'm learning spanish and esperanto at the moment, and I'd like to do something with mandarin as well if it's not too difficult.

    Your English is great. It's much better than a lot of posters who speak English natively :P

    Well, about the name - Let's say that each number is not necessarily replaced by only one word. Besides, don't forget that the cipher is taken from some science (If you still don't succeed in deciphering it, I'll give some extra tip).

    About the languages, I speak Hebrew, Russian and English, but can also speak Spanish (Not very fluently, though), and I study Esperanto too (Do you know the site "lernu"?). I would also like to study japanese - Maybe I'll take the course of Japanese For Beginners as a part of the free selection in the Technion.

    Welcome and have fun.

    Great! I believe you're the one who has solved it in the shortest time, with the minimum of tips (Many people from other forums have tried).

    Thanks!

    Well, the answer is - The periodic table! (Each number has to be replaced by the letter or letters of the element that the said number is it's atomic number).

    Oh, but I've "developed" it so you can also decipher words by subtraction:
    For example, you can write "L" as 3-53
