Where to 'S'tart (Posted on 2004-11-30) Difficulty: 4 of 5

1st pass encryption - MIF.CLGMFELCMLM.
2nd pass encryption - VO.IOSTSKQOPYY.
3rd pass encryption - K.XXHMMDBFEOX.

1. What answer would Zero pass encryption reveal, given that the encryption method does not change.
2. How much more difficult is it to get to zero level encryption if you don't have the level 1 values, only level 2?

Juggler admitted that the first 'F' in the first pass is supposed to be an 'E', this gives the first 4 letters as 'STOP'.  If you continue, the next letter becomes 'M'.

You can figure the rest out on your own, 'cause my head hurts too much right now.
