Hi, one of our resident smarties (where I live) posted this:

"Any true geek will be able to translate this (and no, there aren't any handy dandy translators out there on the web like the ASCII/Hex one you've been using ... you'll have to do this one by hand :wink: )

11001000 10010110 10100110 01000000 10000011 10000001 10010101 01000000 10101000 10010110 10100100 01000000 10000010 10000101 01000000 10000010 10010110 10011001 10000101 10000100 01000000 10100110 10001001 10100111 10001000 01000000 10000111 10000101 10000101 10010010 01000000 10100010 10010111 10000101 10000001 10010010 01101011 01000000 11100010 10001000 10000101 10010011 10010011 10000101 10101000 01101111

Let's see who the true geeks are out there :)"

Now I took some programming 10 years ago but haven't actually used it since. I can't figure out what the heck this says in ascii. Anyone help? :)

No, I didn't mean it was in ascii now, I was wondering what it said in ascii. I used a variety of converters to try from binary to hex or to ascii or to hex and then ascii and nothing made sense. I'm suspecting that it's not binary, maybe it's some sort of peripheral equipment instruction code. The guy who posed the question gave this hint:

Okay, rather than "print" it, I'll "write" it ... maybe that will give you a clue? :)
