View Full Version : Binary encoded text

26th December 2010, 22:58
Please, stop the binary encoded text nonsense! It seems the trend is catching on and I'd rather not see PA as a forum for R2D2 wannabes.
Just in case anyone is missing the trick, here is one of the many sites offering translation: http://www.roubaixinteractive.com/PlayGround/Binary_Conversion/Binary_To_Text.asp

The text looks like this:
01010100011010000110010100100000011001100110111101 11001001100011011001010010000001101001011100110010 00000111001101110100011100100110111101101110011001 11001000000110100101101110001000000110110101100101 00100001

Agree, one less distraction would be nice, i think we have ENOUGH to deal with???

Sigh...... Maybe you binary speak peoples need your own thread???

Yes... i know what binary is, and how to translate it, im not getting why we are using it on the forum??? For me it just creates YET another distraction, and slows down the flow of communication!!!!

...maybe it has to do with this...

Simple answer, No...

This thread, is asking to stop the use of Binary code on the forum. Not an explanation of what Binary is or the continued use of it.

A thread for discussion of Binary code is here:
