I will assign this more points if it proves to be more difficult than I imagined.

I'm just bored and had little else to do :P I promise this one has an algorithm, and will probably be my last one for a long time

Ta da!!  Here is a piece of it, too much to decode the lot.

Also, for some stupid fun checkout http://virtualstapler.com. I really only threw that in that in there to possibly clue you in on the way the string is jumbled.

Xx :o)

Lol,so this is what this notif is all about. Since Xx can not be bothered to check who is logged in then I think I deserve a slice of the points if any are awarded for his rather poor and incomplete answer. :)

Also, not that it is necessary, but here are the encoding/decoding vb functions I made for this

Public Function MixUpString(ByVal vString As String) As String
Dim i As Long, vTempStr As String
vTempStr = ""
For i = 1 To Len(vString) Step 2
vTempStr = vTempStr & Mid\$(vString, i, 1)
Next i
For i = 2 To Len(vString) Step 2
vTempStr = vTempStr & Mid\$(vString, i, 1)
Next i
MixUpString = vTempStr
End Function

Public Function FixMixedString(ByVal vString As String) As String
Dim i As Long, vTempStr As String, vLen As Long
vLen = Len(vString)
vLen = Int(vLen / 2) + IIf(vLen / 2 = Int(vLen / 2), 0, 1)
vTempStr = ""
For i = 1 To vLen
vTempStr = vTempStr & Mid\$(vString, i, 1) & Mid\$(vString, i + vLen, 1)
Next i
FixMixedString = vTempStr
End Function
