Love the color palette ;)
What kind of "Be sure to drink your Ovaltini at an upcoming Hubba" level of shenanigans is this?
Orphan Annie would be proud.
How did you deciphered this!? How does this work?
It's a direct substitution. A given letter will always have the same color or color pair, and case doesn't even matter. So all you have to do is type the alphabet and then match up the colors to see what letter each thing is. Note that digits map to the same colors as some letters, so there's some possible ambiguity about the interpretation of some color patterns.
I hope it doesn't give too much away to note that the source code is very concise and readable.
You know, now that you mention it I am thirsty.
It'll look good on the side of the floppy disk out front!
looks as though it's been .. re-implemented? co-opted? homage'd? 😄 https://twitter.com/readyready/status/1653852790672998400

The timing of this post and your comment here is compelling...
“Pray I do not implement it further.”
