Looking back at Ian McLean's solution to the similar practice problem, I think we may have to look at the different horizontal rows. I'm going to
start in on that angle, trying to figure out which row might be the crucial one (eg, in the earlier puzzle, rows 2&4 were where the code was).
The other thing I'm wondering about is, what if the shift changes for each letter? So, for example, you would shift the first letter by one, the
second letter by 2, the third letter by 3 ... (or by 5, then 6, then 7 ...; or by 2 then 4 then 6 ...)
