Sculptor Gives a Hint For CIA's Kryptos.

"The New York Times reports that Jim Sanborn, the sculptor who created 
the wavy metal pane called Kryptos that sits in front of the CIA in 
Langley, VA, has gotten tired of waiting for code-breakers to decode the 
last of the four messages. 'I assumed the code would be cracked in a 
fairly short time,' [Sanborn] said, adding that the intrusions on his 
life from people who think they have solved his fourth puzzle are more 
than he expected. So now, after 20 years, Mr. Sanborn is nudging the 
process along. He has provided The New York Times with the answers to 
six letters in the sculpture's final passage. The characters that are 
the 64th through 69th in the final series on the sculpture read NYPVTT. 
When deciphered, they read BERLIN." Slashdot.org
