    Tom, I like the way you think... I did suggest binary codes... way, way back when there were few users on the YAB board.. but alas, it was shot down... Most folks seem to feel that the codes (if there are codes) will be easier to decipher... I truly feel that there will be at least one or two very hard codes here to crack... Afterall... MS is not declaring this as a donation..LOL

    And it's only natural for a computer programmer to toss out a binary code. Perhaps we can find a reference to turn binary into alphanumeric?

    I know there are simplified systems, but having a reference to the one used by operating systems would be helpful too.

    Sadly, I'm not sure that a binary code will come from that line, as it's only 11 characters.

    Maybe someone wants to look at those leaves on page 41?

    Not sure if this type of reference is what you're looking for, but:

    It seems coincidental that the poem references a code "five to a side" and we only need 5 binary digits to represent any letter of the alphabet.

    Thanks samglo, that's the one... 7/8 bit ASCII. I'll see if I can find that simplified code too.
