Another encoded question

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

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
