"Strange," Andy thought. "Never received work from this site before."
Eager to finish and get home, he set to work on figuring out the troublesome codes. The first one took him some time .............

"What!" he laughed. He thought it was a joke or that he had deciphered incorrectly. However he continued using the same template, and by the time he'd finished he wasn't laughing anymore.
