    Yup. Heres how it worked.

    Take the image as a binary. Its:

    1001000000001000101
    0100000100000000010
    1010101000101000000

    (black = 1, white = 0)

    Make it one line.

    100100000000100010101000001000000000101010101000101000000

    Convert it to hex:

    120115040155140

    Oddly, that hex is in octal form, which should let you know your on the right track. I gave a clue to octal in one of my posts in this thread, when I said "8".

    Take the octal #, and convert it to ACSII

    You get:

    PM m`

    Thats the answer. It should be PM me, but the conversion messes it up. If you dont believe me, take PM me, convert it to octal, then convert that # from hex to binary, and youll get the same binary that my image is. Thanks to everyone who participated, and congratulations GeneralDodo!

    You're a hardware guy and you don't know binary?

    odly my ASCII<-> Binary econder/decoder says that it is wrong, and it says it has to be in a hex of 8, oh well. I know it is a hex of 8 but its telling me its not.

    To Poge:

    01000001011011100111100100100000011101110110000101111001001000000100111001101001011000110110010100100000011001110110111101101001011011100110011100100000010100000110111101100111011001010010000001111001011011110111010100100000011100100110010101100001011011000110110001111001001000000111001101110100011101010111000001100101011001000010000001100001011011000110111101110100001000000110111101100110001000000111000001100101011011110111000001101100011001010010110000100000010010010010000001110100011010000110111101110101011001110110100000100000011011100110111100100000011011110110111001100101001000000111011101100001011100110010000001100111011011110110100101101110011001110010000001110100011011110010000001100111011001010111010000100000011010010111010000100000011100110110111100100000011010010010000001100100011001010110001101101001011001000110010101100100001000000111010001101111001000000111011101100001011010010111010000100000011101000110100101101100011011000010000001110100011010000110010100100000011011000110000101110011011101000010000001101101011011110110110101100101011011100111010000101100001000000110001001100101011000110111010101100001011100110110010100100000011010010010000001110010011001010110001101101111011011100110100101110011011001010110010000100000011010010111010000100000011100100110100101100111011010000111010000100000011011110110011001100110001000000111010001101000011001010010000001100010011000010111010000101110
