Ciphertext from Hell

Allright… This thing is starting to piss me off. Any clue what cipher was used to encrypt this? I’ve been poking at it since Saturday evening and I have very little to show 😦

I know two things – it is a substitution cipher but not a ceasar cipher. How do I know? Because I already did a brute force caesar check on it and I got nothing but gibberish. So back to letter frequency dance… I really want to decrypt that crap now!

But it will have to wait a bit. I need to start studying for my exam on Wed…

    it looks like the Vigenère cipher which is a keyword cipher got any clue as to what it might be and you could probably crack it just a suggestion

    I actually already cracked it. I was a simple substitution cipher after all. Much less complex than Vigenere – I think I was overthinging it 😛
