ex_greymaide85: Greymaiden's first code

I offer you this code to break the ice. I'd characterize it of about medium difficulty.

$5 via paypal to the first person who cracks it.

Good luck. I sure hope I didn't make any typos ;)

You might have made a couple, but hey, close enough. ;D This is what I got, verbatim:

THIS MESSAGE SIMPLY EXPLAINS HOW I ENCODED IT SINCE IT IS POSSIBLE TO SOLVE WITHOUT BEING SELF EVIDENT. I ARRANGED THE ALPHABET IN A SPIRAL AROUND A ON A PIECE OF GRAPH PAPER, THEN I NUMBERED THE GRIDS LIKE A MAP. EACH LETTER IS REPRESNTED BY THE TWO NUMBERS OF ITS GRID POSITION. HAPPY CRACKING!

Yay that was fun! :D

Since the code's already been cracked, care to share the answer, or are we still to muddle through it?

I'll share. She cracked it pretty fast though, so I figured I'd leave it secret for a little while longer and see if anyone else got it.

Per request, I'll unscreen the text.

That was a damn good one. I'd been working on it off and on all morning at work, trying to figure out the pattern!

Thanks. I didn't want to post something too easy, like a regular substitution sypher, so I was trying to figure out how to mix it up a little without making it too terribly difficult.

However, since it took Becki less than half a day to crack it, I think I'm going to have to try harder next time!
