That killed my inner child. Macs killed it once, but it was revived by the iWork '08/iLife '08/Leopard bundle. The only way you, Philipp can bring my fun side back is by putting the google logo on the front page and asking what it says. Then I'll solve the riddle.

Really crafty riddle. Again, I had to use programs because I was too lazy to convert all those hexadecimals. As for Rohit's puzzle, I can't solve it. (Any ideas?) I think it's binary, but the gap is irregular and unpredictable...

McBilly [PersonRank 0]

Wow. That was crazy! Damn. I feel so geeky! :)

Freiddie [PersonRank 7]

Can I get a hint for Rohit's puzzle?

Rohit Srivastwa [PersonRank 10]

Its not always digital encryption

think manual
think old age message transmission

$ python
>>> s = "0110 0000 00 0100 00 0110 0110 01 10 100 1000 0100 111 110 111 000 1010 111 0110 0 100 010 111 1010 101 000"
>>> s.replace('0', '.').replace('1', '-')
'.--. .... .. .-.. .. .--. .--. .- -. -.. -... .-.. --- --. --- ... -.-. --- .--. . -.. .-. --- -.-. -.- ...'

And input that into morsecode.scphillips.com/jtran ... yields

Morse code.. I should have guessed it. Well, I don't actually know Morse code because I didn't bother to memorize anything but triple dashes and tiriple dots (for SOS only).

Some more ways other than Morse to "spell" Google:

Philipp, I don't think Google is spelt that way in Chinese (anymore). It's spelt "谷歌" now, not "doggy".

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

Yes true, that was pre-Google's official naming. (Though I wonder if all people refer to it using Google's official words already?)

Freiddie [PersonRank 7]

12 years ago #

I don't know, but I don't think everyone knows that official word. In fact, I think quite a lot of people still know it by its English name.
