 Subject: VMs: The barrel theory revisited
 Imagine a cylinder with 8 rows by 16 characters with a reference plate
 lining up with the cipher letters holding the plaintext alphabet. Gallows
 indicate when to turn the cylinder a notch, as each glyph will represent
 different plaintext characters on each row. This is very similar to what
 Steve Ekwall has suggested, but I feel would be much easier to use.
 Can anyone think of any reason why this wouldn't work? I honestly haven't
 thought about it much yet.
sounds *cool* like a rubics cube on a stick?
but it's _simpler than you think_ (per ES), 
you don't need a 'barrel', "just a piece/PAGEkey of paper!"

best to you & yours
