i] TT Codes - As far as I am able to ascertain,Zodiac was referring to sound wave technology,as a ''surreal twist'' on a fundamentally satirical essay.It seems therefore,that ''TT'' stands for ''TeleType'',with reference to the physical outcome,as was the case with TeleType tape being emitted from a Teleprinter.
ii] ''NFC''- This abbreviation was ''locked'' inside the passage : ACUSES NFC NEAR CREDIT.Therefore,unlikely to stand in any other order or form than,precisely ''NFC'' - Neo Fascist Cops.
iii] ''UCLA'' - University of California,Los Angeles.
iv] ''LA'' Strikes - Los Angeles industrial and public sector Strikes - as was the case,with unofficial ones emerging,at the time of the creation of the ''340'' cipher.

In examining Rubislaw 32's ''Final Solution'' to Zodiac's ''340'',there is little doubt,that it is intended as a work of satire.
I have already highlighted its context,in relation to historical events,at the time of its construction.Namely,further attempts to uncover treasure at Oak Island,Nova Scotia ; the assassinations of Black Panther leaders,Bunchy Carter and John Huggins,at UCLA ; the emergence of unofficial strikes in Los Angeles.
In addition,a reference to SF Chronicle columnist,Herb Caen,in relation to his opinion on the UCLA assassinations,and a sarcastic aside,with regard to investigations into the murder of Darlene Ferrin.
What seems apparent is,that Zodiac has laid out the solution composition,as a piece of prose.One might note that Zodiac is also suspected of having written the Desktop Poem.This piece of writing could,arguably,be described more accurately as ''prose'',than poetry [?].''The Desktop Prose'' [!].
I would suggest that the ''340'' solution does come across,as slightly ''stilted'',since Zodiac would have had to ''tailor'' it to become exactly 340 characters,in length.
Hence,I present the solution as,in all probability,that Zodiac constructed it and viewed it,in its original form :

A ''thank you'' to Ricardo,for arranging ''Zodiac's Bident'',as it appears in Rubislaw 32's final solution to Zodiac's 340 cipher.
What is a bident ? -------------------
A bident is a two-pronged fork or spear,as for example,a pitchfork.
It is well known for being the ''weapon of choice'' used by HADES,the ruler of the Earth,death and underworld,and Greek god of the afterlife.
POSEIDON was the ruler of the sea,and employed a trident [...three-pronged spear...],as his ''weapon of choice''.
ZEUS was the ruler of the sky,and employed a spear,as his ''weapon of choice''.
The inference of ''Zodiac's Bident'',is that Zodiac,in laying out his solution to his 340 cipher,inlaid the depicted bident,in order to tell the story,as he interpreted it,of events that took place,at UCLA University,on January 17th 1969,when Black Panther leaders,Bunchy Carter and John Huggens,were assassinated.

At that time,history records that the CIA was tasked with investigating the ''breeding grounds'' of recruitment for ''perceived'' subversive factions,such as ''Black Power'' units,that the ''establishment'' interpreted as ''anarchistic'',in their intentions.
The ''manifestation'' of this anarchy,was tasked to the FBI.
Los Angeles was seen as the hotbed of its manifestation.Hence,a covert organisation known as COINTELPRO was formed,with forces of the FBI allying themselves to the LAPD,in an effort to undermine the potency of factions,such as the Black Panther Party.
The mastermind of COINTELPRO is presumed to have been J Edgar Hoover,then Director of the FBI.
And clearly,when Zodiac refers to ''NFC'',as ''Neo Fascist Cops'',he is pointing the finger at COINTELPRO.

......Hence,''Zodiac's Bident'' relays his interpretation of events,at UCLA.
Did Zodiac start his composition solution to the 340 cipher,with ''Zodiac's Bident'' ? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't believe so.I would suggest that as Zodiac started to compose,that which he desired to express.....including ''Oak Island'',''Darlene Ferrin'' and ''L.A. Strikes''....it dawned on him that the possibility of ''column embroidery'' might give the solution another impressive dimension.
Once Zodiac had hit on the idea,he started to ''constrain'' the proposed grid solution,with this extra dimension.
It appears a shame,therefore,that Zodiac then decided to jumble up the solution,leaving what I have offered as the ''Primary Solution''...the solution required,before solving many anagrams....to arrive at what he originally intended.
I calculate that Zodiac only left 44% of the ''final solution'' in tact.Which just goes to show that Zodiac was unable to judge ''degree of difficulty'',and therefore a beginner at cryptography....albeit ''bright'',and a fast learner.
But,all things considered,Zodiac's 340 solution is a ''tour de force'' in social and political documentation,and observation.
And,adds credulity to his presumed ''Fairfield Letter'',the following month,when Zodiac declares : '' This state is in trouble...''.
With reference to the unconfirmed Fairfield Letter,dated December 16th 1969,I made reference to the cryptogram in that letter,sometimes referred to,as '' Z5 '',on account that it just contained 5 symbols.
And further,that by employing the cipher keys,employed by the Zodiac,as solved by Rubislaw 32,then '' Z5 '' would solve,as '' C A K I K ''.Presumably,interpreted as '' California kick '',as in ''thrill''.
In that 2nd Fairfield Letter,of December 16th,there appeared to be a numerical riddle,for solving.
The Zodiac had written ''You will not catch me...'',and had listed a few local towns,with a number assigned to each town.
Now,if we collate those numbers,and include an arrow amendment indicated,then the following numerical code,is suggested :
'' 3 1 6 8 9 3 8 ''
If employing the simplest of substitution keys,more particularly A=1,B=2,C=3....etc,then,what emerges is :
'' C A F H I C H ''
'' California Highway .....something [?].
'' CHIPS '',the California Highway Patrol,employed motorbikes in particular,to stop vehicles committing traffic violations.
And,bearing in mind that the term ''Chopper'' was often used,in referring to certain motorbikes,then,it appears transparent that Zodiac's intended numerical puzzle,was intended to have the solution :
'' CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY CHOPPERS ''
''You will not catch me'' [?] - California Highway Choppers.
Rubislaw32: feet to conclude Russian intervention investigations. Then Trump's first public utterance on Comey (claimed by wikipedia ) : ''Comey is crazy - he's a complete nut-job !''. As if Trump was comparing Comey to Norman Bates - he was genuinely spooked.

Rub--law32: I'm no fly on the wall, but it's a pound to a penny that (then) Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told all of this and more to Donald Trump, when Trump was champing at the bit to do business with Russia, and couldn't fathom why Comey was dragging his

Rubislaw32: An explanation from Comey to the Attorney General in a parallel universe : '' Yes, I had considered our great nation and the principles of its security - but first I had to check if my boys needed to do any covering-up - plus the ''hero'' factor for me.''.
Aug 15, 2022 7:57:29 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: 'Embarrassing' ? Well, given the code of sociopathic behaviour ingrained by the FBI, who knows how Comey felt. But at that juncture, the Attorney General would have realized that Comey hadn't informed him on terrorist info from Frank Mulholland. Treason ?
Aug 15, 2022 7:37:43 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Yes FBI, your man Comey caught red-handed impersonating Sherlock Holmes, and without security clearance from his boss the U.S. Attorney General. Just sniffing around, concerned that your agency were about to be left out of a Z-loop. ''M-Bare-Assing''.

Rubislaw32: Brenda's case resurrection goes back to February 2015, and a public announcement of a re-investigation into her murder (July 14th 1978). One week later, the Crown Office took safe possession of Joan Webster's case file, followed by Comey's Z-case exposure.

Rubislaw32: So, although crude terminology, and retrospectively murdered by neither GSK nor the Zodiac - Nancy's case was assisted benevolently by both GSK & Zodiac ''cash cows''. August 22nd 2022, and the murder trial of Brenda Page starts - Z's Scotch Tape lie.
Aug 15, 2022 5:30:03 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Since the arrest of GSK in April 2018, the official LE claim is that 150 criminal cases have benefited, with a perceived GSK link. In addition, Nancy Bennallack was murdered one day before the Zodiac Killer mailed his Halloween Card (Oct. 27th 1970).

Rubislaw32: To the CA DOJ : If the Zodiac is still alive, as I believe and believe that you know that he is - go and get him. The public are past caring about your level of confidence, and whether you think it is in the public's interest. Let him speak for himself.
Aug 14, 2022 18:29:30 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: on their obligations. For the CA DOJ, they still seem to be on the side of righteousness - but there is certainly concern that they might make him a ''fall-guy'', expended for other benefits of the CA DOJ's choosing. History will be harsh if they play God.

Rubislaw32: In time, the FBI will be outed for their dereliction of duty in the Zodiac case - and even when they were giving him attention, ''dropped the ball'' on so many occasions. Those that retain a case interest, still hope that the judiciary can deliver..
Aug 14, 2022 17:53:04 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Has the Zodiac Killer case been used as a ''cash cow'' for resurrecting other cases to gain necessary funding, to be solved ? Certainly an element of truth there - but no one would want to be the person to say that to any victims' families.
Aug 14, 2022 16:05:25 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...solve the ''biggest fish'' (e.g. The Zodiac Killer case) - the more holding back in time to catch it. For the UK I have proffered (at least) Z-outliers related to Inverness 1976, Aberdeen 1978 and Glasgow 2005. Resolutions on those, still a bit away.
Aug 14, 2022 15:52:06 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...Killer's. But, once that undertaking is made (e.g. Bennallack case), then with the extra funding found, the case in question is seen out on its own merits regardless. The ''Catch-22'' scenario might be, though, that the more outlier cases allocated to..

Aug 14, 2022 7:53:55 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Moreover - what might remain an ''outlier fear'' for the FBI is, if the Crown Office uncover evidence of a crime committed by the Zodiac, outside of any jurisdiction that the FBI might hold -something like death threats to Stanley Kubrick's family (UK) ?
