I just wanted to test my encryption skills with this wonderful community that seems to be able to crack almost any code! I've made a few codes before, but almost always, they were encoded several times over, sometimes in several different languages, and not meant to be decoded by anyone but the recipient. This is a new style of encryption for me - making a code that is meant to be hard, but not unsolvable, so please excuse me if it is too hard or too easy. Anyway, here goes.
The encrypted string to solve is
Encrypted with the exact same encryption as the one above, the phrase "How are you today, friend?" results in 1ydz2ky2bx2hlbw2nkrlv.
In addition, the phrase "What does the fox say?" results in 1dyhz2ljy1hyx1ncw1jbv
You guys seem to be having some trouble. "Black baboons like butter." enciphers to 1puevz3pprjy2uvx2phhkw.
Note: Proper spelin is the key to solving this problem. If you mess up your spelling, you likely won't get anywhere.
Also, the first paragraph legitimately has nothing to do with solving the encryption.
