Decode the Text!

Here is a challenge to decode the following text (in english):
158:198:236:212:68:150:234:68:144:238:224:68:144:226:232:238:222:30:24:140:214:234:202:238:
234:234:214:226:224:68:198:200:226:238:236:68:222:198:236:212:92:68:228:238:248:248:220:206:
234:92:68:210:198:222:206:234:68:198:224:204:68:208:238:224:96:68:30:24:30:24

Hehe, have fun!

Re: Decode the Text!

I think encryptor 6 is not that safe...
if you have a set of characters {c1,c2,c3, ... ,cN}
you are  encrypting them the following way:

1) get the ascii values of each character
{asc1,asc2,asc3, ... ,ascN}

2)apply password 1 and pwd 2 {p1,p2}

{asc1*p2+p1*p2,asc2*p2+p1*p2,asc3*p2+p1*p2, ... ,ascN*p2+p1*p2}

3) separate the values and create a string
"a'1:a'2:a'3:...:a'N"

that's a pretty weak encryption imho..
anyone can find out this with a few encryptions of small strings like "ab" or "aaa"
we could also suspect that multiplications were involved because say "Enter password 2 (integers other than 0"

Re: Decode the Text!

well, it is not meant for real encryption, just for fun!

there is another encryptor that can encode into special Chinese characters:

eg:
琶抢楸楸⫸ὀ暊煈ὀ暊灎ὀ歬汦煈ὀ橲抢庺歬煈ὀ掜汦潔ὀ潔抢庺楸ὀ抢歬悮潔瘪浠煈暊汦歬⫸ὀ构牂灎煈ὀ掜汦潔ὀ掜牂歬ಲৄಲৄ煈斐抢潔抢ὀ暊灎ὀ庺歬汦煈斐抢潔ὀ抢歬悮潔瘪浠煈汦潔ὀ煈斐庺煈ὀ悮庺歬ὀ抢歬悮汦憨抢ὀ暊歬煈汦ὀ灎浠抢悮暊庺楸ὀ䅮斐暊歬抢灎抢ὀ悮斐庺潔庺悮煈抢潔灎㢤ಲৄಲৄ

again, it is not really secure since one symbol only codes for one letter

Re: Decode the Text!

It's just weird little squares on my computer! Does that mean that I can't view them because they're not installed?

Re: Decode the Text!

I think so...I can view them fine but I have Asian languages installed.
