Encryption challenge
#1
Hey all,
I was sitting at my kitchen table doodling for a while after doing my math work, and I came out with an encryption algorythm
Here's the encrypted file: http://thegeekery.org/chlgtxt.zip (I zipped it so you could download it, instead of viewing it in your browser window).
You must write a complete, functioning program that will take the contents of the encrypted file and decrypt it, storing the decrypted data in another file.
Important note! Do not, whatever you do, post your code here! It will ruin the challenge. PM me with the code, instead.
Another note: The decrypted file will contain a message, written in English, proper spelling and grammar.
Good luck!

I'm placing my bets on Neo for the first one to crack it. Smile He's brilliant with that sort of thing.
If Blitz was around, he could probably do it.
I must say that, to me, it looks extremely hard to crack. But that's for the enterers to decide. :wink:
