I really wanted to break this code

http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/09/21/google-is-searching-for-beautiful-minds-but-so-far-no-m-i-t-students-have-broken-its-code/



I really wanted to break that (google jobs) code, but finally, its was just nothing more than counting characters, and adding 1 and 0.

google.txt
8MLDQ6 T UI
6TFML RH AA
NRA6Q 8EFL 
DMQ86II2 O3
2S5J 13JXOJ

python code to decrypt / calculate phone number from that
"+1-"+"".join([str(len(x)) for x in open("google.txt").read().replace("\r","").replace("\n","").split()])+"0"

phone number
'+1-6172748660'

When you called, there is automatic answering machine, saying its Google, and to tell your name and ask you Phone number.

# May be This is done by TechCrunch or MIT or can be by any other too, than Google.

Dear ALL,

Sorry, It was a TRAP!!!, the number (617 274 8660) I got is also by Google Jobs, 
so I under-estimated or thought as It was just a joke by someone. But actually It is a real code.

correct number is is 617 639 0570 (extension 10) and 
de-ciphering method can be find here,

anyway, here is present python codes to de-cipher it :-)

x="8MLDQ6 T UI 6TFML RH AA NRA6Q 8EFL DMQ86II2 O3 2S5J 13JXOJ"

a="0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ "
b="456789ABCDE2FGHIJKL0MNOP1QRS3TUVWXYZ "

print "".join([b[a.index(x)] for x in x])

CONGRA T UL ATION SK EE PSEAR CHIN GORCALL6 17 6390 570X10

cheers,
Mark

This so-called puzzle is foul. It cannot appear like a crossword format when one line is to be read in conjunction with the other and I could put a space in between first line and second line and other may not. Open to different interpretation.
