Forsaken saint, how many times each number is in there is irrelevant.

Now, if you'll notice, that's hex.

convert all of that hex back to decimal, and you get this:

7166141013114410215551111911131346303021510271100490121151551159611101084154413123101550109100220813111114991681073314414514255871491011546215422689714912615101581501512910911113121243212141515106848821371210315184121071211344842312269155310501416282132111011108910156141118352159131012583942121531142111374914223013814731481510851201431513242291316510349452113036101280793214836212115911108551943215157301009119131313147144131113104118710012123541253131211211799204033123309158114132123032144014611101391314103102315443104122914131311421121214108111251013151281534421511239151513532429121078113814212083247375116842011521203102155810410413134113931311441211297131231232351215101281112141143313712129138491013123310150269410117133239315314146583137112141608373810411541243310284613139910510102153142331008785146114111415150361513815113110121031111140268116536110113801231251212147934148213310210999151091333521412281012911102281551510112144596375111147411414305121291041735261311311365155111380123121440147911458313433391410911101498303121312312215103125102471711041413139211119104641321538121091111291121401120460841352691513152120310215581041043115421430269511581413122938315231018111210133481313461591588412113612103120105111012524424115321210094110120582534391031010915141031522154114971131012323521155151062

now, you can go through and see how many times the numbers turn up. ( I would do 2 digit numbers, as that's what most ascii is. HOWEVER! it could be a simple ceasar cipher, in which case you'd be using 1 digit occurences.

since only the letters a, b, c, d, e, and f are there, it is probably some sort of encoding hexidecimal. I went to http://nickciske.com/tools/hex.php, copied the text into the hex box, and clicked decode to convert the hexidecimal into ASCII, and it gave:

qfêJ/U»ÝF00/¢q Iõº¨ODÜ1P© "ÛIh§3ä^%X~F/B&qIÆúøðü½ÌC,ï¦!7?L§Ë4HB<&S¥(-+«¨öë5/¬X9BÏ;B½t"0Øç>¨\?ÒB)Ñe£IE+06¬y2è6,¨UC/÷0 ÝçäÛÚK Ì5LSܲ· @3Ã0M,02äk­ê:#ôC¤ÂÝ+,êÅ¡?ÈóD!QÃýS$)x³,2G7[hBòÀ:/X¤¤ÝK9=L²Ü<25ϬÎC17ÌÜ3ð&«}29?>æX=qÎ78¤µLC:(FÝ¥ª/>#:x^aëïð6ý³°;@&e6Ø<\Îy4è-:*©Ó5!L(¬¢(õú²äYcuçKN0\ɤ5&ÑÛ6_[Ø<äy´X1439ê®0<Ü</£Å¢GNÝ»FM/8¼.

so that didn't help at all :\.

Also at http://www.natural-innovations.com/computi...sciiebcdic.html

I tried to convert the first few pairs of characters into EBCDIC, and that didn't work either.

It might be a hash or checksum, since those have those kind of hexidecimal characters.

EDIT: you posted while i was typing my reply. looks like you are on the right track. :)

you can't decrypt a hash or checksum unless you brute force it or use a rainbow table. Maybe it is in a different language?

I've converted the input file from hex to ascii. I've then done a frequency analysis. Here are the results (ascii values not hit at all are not displayed):

ascii 1 = 2

ascii 8 = 5

ascii 11 = 1

ascii 12 = 3

ascii 14 = 4

ascii 15 = 1

ascii 16 = 1

ascii 17 = 2

ascii 248 = 1

ascii 250 = 3

ascii 252 = 1

ascii 253 = 3

176/256 characters were hit atleast once, so i'm guessing that this is not a simple transposition, as there is far too much entropy.

I envy all of you for having any idea what this all means...

I really should read some books on cryptography it is intresting indeed...

I don't care what it is, it looks like phun.

Does this little snippet of code in this snapshot have any signifigance?
