What code is this?

  1. Aug 1, 2008 #1
    Could someone tell me what code this is? I have no idea and I want to decode it.

    Code (Text):
    0w 3b 22t 36 37 2x 382r 33 33 36 2z 2x 32 2v 0w 33 32 0w 2p 0w 37 3d 37 38 2t 31 0w 38 33 0w 31 2t 2p 370w 33 32 0w 34 36 33 2y 2t 2r 38 37 0w 2p 32 2s 0w 38 2w 2t 0w 30 2x 2z 2t 1a 0w 2x 38 13 37 02x 3d 0w 37 2t 31 2x 32 2p 36 0w 2p 38 0w 2r 33 2r 38 2x 3a 2x 38 3d 0w 33 2u 0w 37 2x 32 2v 30 2t 0w 31 33 30 2t 2r 39 30 2t 37 1a 0w 33 38 2w 2t 36 0w 38 2w 2p 32 0w w 2p 38 0w 39 36 2t 0w 2x 32 2v 0w 2p 0w 30 33 38 0w 33 2u 0w 33 38 2w 2t 36 0w 3b 33 36 2z 0w 2p2p 36 2t 0w 3d 33 39 0w 2s 33 2x 32 2v 0w 36 2t 37 2t 2p 36 2r 2w 0w 33 32 1r 0w 2x 0w 3b 2p 37 0w 2y 39 37 38 0w 2p 38 0w 2p 0w 32 2p 32 33 38 2t 2r 2w 32 33 30 33 2v2x 13 31 0w 2s 332w 2x w 32 33 38 0w  3d 0w 3b38 2w 2t 0w 2r 33 32 2s 39 2h 33 39 13 36 2t 0w 3b 33 36 2z 2x 32 2v2p 0w 33 32 0w 31 33 32 2s 2p 3d 1a 0w 21 0w 2w 2p 3a 2t 0w 2p 3230 39 31 2q 34 0w 2p 38 0w 2b 38 1a 0w 22 33 2w 32 13 37 0w 39 32 2x 3a 38 2w 2p 38 18 0w 0w 2x 32 38 2t 36 32 37 38 0w 2p 0w 3a 2t 36 330 39 31 2q 2x 2p 1r 0w 2p 3b 2t 37 33 31 2t 0x

    Could you give us some context? For instance, from where does the code come, and what makes you believe that it actually is a code?

    Assembly language?

    A friend and I were exchanging messages: at first in binary, then in hex and octal, and now this.

    0w keeps on coming up, could that be of any help?

    It may be the way your PC's idea of unicode versus what the datastream actually has in it. Is the data sent in UTF-16 for example?

    This wasn't sent through a file; it was just text on a forum post. :\

    Base 36, more or less obvious.

    2p -> a
    2q -> b
    2r -> c

    and so on.

    0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

    so 33 -> 3*36+3 = 111 -> o

    Honestly, it was you who should decode the message...
