[SOLVED] Fun Challenge - $50 Paypal To Whoever Solves My Puzzle...
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

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.

Should be fun, here's the puzzle:

010100010011001001000110011100110101101001010111
010010010110011101010101001100110100001001110000

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.

Lol...I'll have the answer within a couple days. I think I know what this is, but I'm not 100% sure, gotta research some things. I'm not going to refer to what I mean, because it's pretty simple once you get the idea.
I'm going to check it and when I'm sure, I'll be back with teh answer.

No sig, good day m8...

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...

He converted into a different code. I was checking into it, but didn't focus on the right thing lol.
There are plenty of ways to code with numbers, this was a different format than what everyone else was trying, simply a different coding language.

Will, I would'a had you in 12 hours gerrrrrrr!

Congrats man...

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.

Great puzzle, although I'm working in binary at the university, I'm not that advanced in these coding formats.

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