Title: AW: Example of a simple cipher in the VMS...?

If today wasn't today, I'd say ain.dy.teey is as easy as "one two three"!
(Happy fool's day)

Hi everyone,

Please don't get too excited, but I think I ~may~ have found an example of
a simple cipher embedded in the VMS! I kept coming back to one particular
line on f79v in the balneological section (the page with the animals
drinking from the pool at the bottom)...

<f79v.P.15;H>      yteedy.qokeedy.qokai!n.olkeey.cheokain.dy.teey.qokai!n-

...and it suddenly struck me this morning that "...ain.dy.teey..." might be
the key! I've assembled some of the rest of the cipher, please try this
out, see what you think...

        a       A
        c       Q
        d       I
        e       O
        h       U
        i       P
        k       T
        l       N
        n       R
        o       E
        q       S
        t       F
        y       L

However, I don't currently believe the rest of the VMS is in the same
simple cipher, though, which I find quite mysterious... interesting! :-o

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....

PS: anyone prefer randomisation? I like following on other leads... :-)
