It can make matters worse...

111 106 40 101 40 104 117 107
40 103 101 116 40 104 122 105
101 115 40 111 116 40 101 114
114 40 103 117 114 117 122 123

There seem to be a relation, so maybe itÂ´s better to keep them binary...

Based on your answer... it seems you figured out that the "00101000" character must be a space. Converting binary to decimal you get 00101000 = 40. Knowing that 40 had to translate to a space somehow, I looked at an ascii chart and noticed that in base 8 (octal), 40 is the space character. So if we translate the rest of the message into decimal, and then treat that as octal ascii code... we get:

IF A DOG CAN DREAM IN ALL COLORS

You guys were already on the right track and did most of the work.

Great job!

I would really like to know how you got that.

You got some of the characters right, what happened with the rest?

translated the binary to decimal & got the same answers as Skywalker. Then I ran a char(X) function to get the ascii characters. I saw they were all lowercase letters, closing parentheses and one close brace. I figured the close parentheses were spaces, the close brace was a period or question mark, and treated everything else as a regular cryptogram. I just went wrong on the cryptogram portion - figured you were completing a sentence, I guessed "if" and "the" is one of the more common three letter words in English. The cryptogram method would actually have worked, except I wouldn't have gotten "colors", just "color" - I just never figured on "dog" Edited by HoustonHokie
