Hello Jeff,

the thing about the VMs is that it's over 200 pages 
long. The longer the text, the easier to crack,
(in theory, of course)
and for a text of the size you present, it is very
easy to make it 'uncrackable'.
Now this doesn't mean that you should start posting
pages and pages of text :-)

In any case, just to give you some feedback of
the type you're looking for: the above differs
from the VMs in many respects:
1) the words are too long
2) the word endings are too varied
Again, I suggest you read Bennet's book which
has been mentioned on the list a few times.
He has some interesting computer experiments where
he presents computer-generated English and 
German - I'sure you will be fascinated.

Cheers, Rene
