I seem to be having a mental block with this one.

I've decoded it to letters, and then created a Perl script to cycle through the possible shift though nothing readable appears.

Anyone able to give a nudge via PM?

Congratz about catching the letters. :) It isn't about shifting characters. It is rather about substitution chiper like it is mentioned in this nice article: https://www.hellboundhackers.org/articles/494-encryption-2.html If you get the idea you will be able to modify your code in the right way, so it isn't necessary to use PolyCrypt.

If you are still stucked, feel free to pm me. ;)

This one gives you the punctuation and spacing, and most of the words are under 4 letters, a pen and paper or notepad is all you need here.

Thanks for the input guys.

I moved onto Encryption 5 and completed it using a pen and paper in the end, so I'll go that route for this one too, with some reading up on that link.
