Just to clear it up, the missing numbers are:
6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 24, 26, 27, 29, 30, 32, 33, 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42. It seems to exclude all the multiples of 3, from 6 to 42, and other numbers...

x3: 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39, 42.

the others are...
20 26 29 32 38 40 41
2 2 5 - 2 13 - 29 - 2 2 2 2 2 - 2 19 - 2 2 2 5 - 41

So that's not it. lesse...

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 22, 23, 25, 28, 31, 34, 37, 43
(1-5) 5, skip 1, (7-8 ) 2, skip 1, (10-11) 2, skip 1, (13-14) 2 , skip 1, (16-17) 2, skip 1, (19) 1, skip 2, (22-23) 2, skip 1, (25) 1, skip 2, (28 ) 1, skip 2, (31) 1, skip 2, (34) 1, skip 2, (37) 1, skip 5.
so, on non-skips, we have...
5 2 2 2 2 1 2 1 1 1 1 1
on skips we have...
1 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 5
these two are reversed. so i'd say that to make the sequence described,
We put infinity on either end of those sets, and 0 on the other end.
so there are 0 skipped below 1, and there are an infinite number skipped after 5. same for the inclusion list.
so, on non-skips, we have...
inf 5 2 2 2 2 1 2 1 1 1 1 1 0
on skips we have...
0 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 5 inf

Not sure what this sequence is called however.

Point to Vorn, then, for making one we couldn't get. :)

yah, not without a lot of help did we even get close.

Of course, Jeremiah proved we could create really sadistic problems that can't be solved with the information given, so maybe a point for unsolvable problems is a bad idea. ;)

I could easily make a cryptogram with more than one charicter set, and more than one set of shifts, and a really wierd arrangement, and possibly nobody would ever solve it. does that mean I get a point? naa, i'd rather leave some hints in, and make it just convoluted enough to make it a challenge. That's what vorn's was. :)
