 After reading this I thought about what I had been attempting myself in
 regard to this method and I think I'm onto something very significant. I
 have to do a little more work to test the theory. When I have finished I
 expect to have found a way to get into the VMS. I can't say at the moment
 how long it will take, but rest assured I will tell you when it happens.

*WoW* for those of you who don't know "what the H*ck" I'm talking 
about, I would like to admit, I don't know "What the H*ck you gays & 
gals are talking about" (ha.haa) hope that helps somehow.

 I'm trying - I'M TRYING (honestly) to explain this.. ArrGGgggg
A FULL letter "character in whatever language" can only be lost when 
you / we encounter the c_gallows_s (this one of 4 c_gallows_c) would 
just point to the "sector?" as Elmar calls it ( I call it the little 
TTT in the Big TTT (he.hee) oh well, anyway, if you ROTATE your key on 
the c_gallows_c..... YOU still HOLD the same position on the smaller 
"sector'd ttt" (mirrored alpha/numeric now) etc.. 

of course, this is not RANDOM per coder, nor DECODER, your just going 
to the MiRrOr Image of the _same_ NEEDED character.

ARrGGgGgggg - how is this SIMPLE ????
It seemed SIMPLE at the ES/time!

like flipping a coin, but we just FLIP the alphabet into a mirror!

Best to all
