comment I need an opinion of encryption method I thought of in High school
1 level depth is not an option as I said in original post, obviously. I'm more concerned with last vulnerability mentioned (all numbers for one seed tested). In fact, this is possible showstopper if no solution can be found. Other things are solveable, I think (CPU power, chipper expansion).

@Ramhound - of course, I mentioned it. It is like with any idea, you find obstacles and try to overcome them. Or find it is a showstopper without possible solution :-(

Responded in a hurry, still thinking about it. I didn't thank you enough, sir. This is first valuable feedback I got. I will invest some more time into seeking possible solutions of obstacles you mentioned (CPU intensive, chipper expansion). I also thought of one more. If attacker tries (in first run) one seed and that one returns ASCII codes of certain mix of numbers and letters, he can dismiss it. If he finds only numbers, he got it (most likely). Need to think this over. Still, have a gut feeling, this method has some potential :-) Again, thank you, and if you have some more advice, please

It was (at that time, but also today) targeted at maximum security of static data so I would really liked a proposal how to measure it against currently available methods in this area of use. As I mentioned, I'm not an expert in the field, but surely there is need for uncrackable encryption so my question is, would this be (reasonably) crackable with available HW?

Thank you for your assessement. I must agree with CPU expense you predicted, but as I remember, back in 1994 on my 386 SX 25Mhz machine it did 10-level depth of 1K text in pretty reasonable time. I should write it again and test it how it measures against today's hardware. Of course, this method wouldn't be much useful in real time encryption.

@Rory - Thanks. I edited my original post. I hope it's elaborate enough now (for start).
