Another Computer Science Birthday Cake

Here's the cake for the Computer Science and Engineering department's monthly birthday celebration.

I know it looks a little crazy, but I promise I haven't lost my mind. The only person with a birthday this month was the professor who teaches cryptography. So I thought it would be fun to write the happy birthday message in code. This code is Caesar cipher, which basically shifts letters in order. In this case, all of the letters are shifted 2 places (since the birthday is on the 2nd day of the month), so A becomes C, B becomes D, C becomes E, and so on. The message says Happy Birthday Dr. Ramkumar. When I took it in yesterday morning, the department head said it was cool, and Mr. McHacker said the recipient thought it was great, so I'm happy with that.

We are going to the Cotton District Arts Festival, Old Main Music Festival, and possibly some of the Super Bulldog Weekend activities today, so I'll have some pictures and stuff to post next week. I hope y'all are enjoying your weekend!

My son would love that. He loves codes and stuff like that.

You are so creative.
