I'm gonna add myself to the current motif. Decrypt this short text:

Code:
`72<3>7=>3<47>55<8>3<6<8`

It is fairly easy so the best algo wins (shorter & faster).
is it a sentence? :x Gah! Im horrible at these
It is a sentence
Code:
`72<3>7=>3<47>55<8>3<6<8`

if not i dont know >_>
I am asking you to decrypt my file.

C'mon, is it that hard?

I think it is fairly easy.
<edit>

*peace*

Hey, that was not fair. You gave a serious hint and didn't give the algo to decrypt the text. Basicly, you ruined the challenge
Awwwww... Meeeeeeeeeeeeg!

Ah well, I was gonna give it a shot, and fail. But Nate, tell us, how the heck do we decrypt that anyway?
YEEHAW!
this is soooo messy, but hey...

Code:
```'AHA! CLS s\$ = "72<3>7=>3<47>55<8>3<6<8 " FOR I = 1 TO LEN(s\$) a\$ = MID\$(s\$, I, 1) IF VAL(a\$) <> 0 THEN    num\$ = num\$ + a\$ ELSE    IF orig = 0 THEN orig = VAL(num\$)    oldd\$ = old\$    old\$ = a\$    oldnum = num    num = VAL(num\$)    num\$ = ""    SELECT CASE oldd\$      CASE ">"        new = new + num      CASE "<"        new = new - num    END SELECT        PRINT CHR\$(new + orig); END IF NEXT```
