Share on:  Solved by Will Perkins - The next one will be harder and more fun, I promise This puzzle came about in my spare time, when I saw Caleb Spilchen post in the test forum in binary. I offered him \$50 to solve a simple puzzle, but figured it'd more fun to offer it in the challenge thread. First one to post the answer gets \$50 in their paypal account. At the end of each week (Sunday night) I will post a new hint, subtracting \$10 from the prize money. When the prize gets down to \$0, the thread will be closed.

basically this binary unveils a proper message or just some random text?

i figured it was some random text:
Q2FsZW
IgU3Bp
bGNoZW
4gTG92
ZXMgQm
luYXJ5
LCBCdX
QgSSBE
b24ndC
BUaGlu
ayBIZS
BMb3Zl
cyBCYX
NlNjQ=

without breaks:
Q2FsZWIgU3BpbGNoZW4gTG92ZXMgQmluYXJ5LCBCdXQgSSBEb2 4ndCBUaGluayBIZSBMb3ZlcyBCYXNlNjQ=

incase it some meaningful message let me know

I was gonna make this the first clue, but it will translate to an 11 word sentence in legible English.

See, if I knew you were gonna enter the contest I would have at least used MD5 or something.

The next one will be harder since I know you'll be trying them.

Nice job though...

Not exactly but close enough

FYI, base64 isn't a coding language, it's just a way to encode different forms of data that represent binary. It's a rather common misconception.

Ahh binary, twos compliment would have been the death of me but being self-taught I was able to skip the boring parts.
