Who is the author?

No, it is not from this site. That would be cheating if I asked help from others. The author is unattributed. I hope that helps, kat!

I would never think you were trying to cheat...just thought you'd solved it and thought it was particularly difficult and wanted to share. :) I've looked at it and it looks like a monster. I think it would frustrate me too much so I'm just going to back slowly away from it...

JACKDAWS LOVE MY BIG SPHINX OF QUARTZ...

oh my gosh, it fits...

I also just realized that each letter in the code is only one off from the actual letter (except for Z being A)...

B=A
K=J
C=B

Who does that? That's just wrong.:) Why would jackdaws love a sphinx of quartz? I just think a crypto should make sense....LOL!

I agree, Kat. Otherwise it might just as well be in another language. :eek:

But nice solving, Maradnu. That's very impressive!

I think it might be a keyboarding phrase like "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" or a panogram like "The five boxing wizards jump quickly." Anyway maradnu you ROCK. :cool:

Great solving! The No-Prize goes to maradnu. Every year in Las Vegas, they have a Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament and the winner receives $50,000. If you win the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, you only win $4,000. It just doesn't seem fair.

Marandu, I am extremely impressed. Way to go! I had no luck when I tried. That's amazing!

Thanks all.

Could not have gotten it without realizing that it included every letter of the alphabet. FWIW - some other short things with every letter include:

Amazingly few discotheques provide jukeboxes. (40 letters)
Heavy boxes perform quick waltzes and jigs. (36 letters)
Jinxed wizards pluck ivy from the big quilt. (36 letters)
Big Fuji waves pitch enzymed kex liquor. (33 letters)
The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog. (33 letters)
Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs. (32 letters)
The five boxing wizards jump quickly. (31 letters)
How quickly daft jumping zebras vex. (30 letters)
Quick zephyrs blow, vexing daft Jim. (29 letters)
Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow. (29 letters)
Waltz, nymph, for quick jigs vex Bud. (28 letters)
Blowzy night-frumps vex'd Jack Q. (26 letters)
Glum Schwartzkopf vex'd by NJ IQ. (26 letters)

I made a pangram at school once

It was REALLY short... But I forget what it was...

It had the word 'xylophone' in it, that's all I remember
