Got it! Jackson, July 3rd was the first to post it. I didn't give the actual answer in case others wanted the challenge. But if you want to cheat you'll find the answer there. If you don't understand it, keep reading from that point on as I was the first to scratch my head on that one and ask for the meaning! Or just click on the blue answer, it gives the info there! (Talk about asking for the meaning of the meaning of the universe!)

Any more puzzles Zack? :lol:

Hmmm????

If it is a binary code, I get "0.,*". Got me for now WW. But I'm going to continue to work on it. Without insulting your intelligence and to show how little I know of coding, did you mean to do Binary or is there something else? Or did you mean this and I just have no clue what you are saying?

All options above are possible, I expect the translation problem is mine.

That's not what I got from Zack's code. I thought I had it, but who knows!

I think Nikita figured it out correctly. WW, you're sooooo close! I'm not going to let the cat out of the bag just yet.
