You have followed a sequence when you've found the binary file, follow it a little more...

I'm sorry, your attempt at a hint, though appreciated, doesn't make any sense to me.

Please, allow me to recap - again - where I am with this particular challenge:
I began by acquiring several .JPG files (one of which was misnamed) and a .GIF file. In following a clue from one of the files in the sequence, I acquired this binary file which appears to need "unshuffling."

As I am not a programmer by trade, or even by hobby to speak of, I do not know where to go from here. I have an idea of what needs to happen with this binary "shuffled" file, but I do not know how to go about that process, in Python or otherwise.

I have tried to remain as cryptic as possible, so if there are any spoilers in this message, I apologize and invite moderators to edit/censor it as they see fit.

Let there be much celebration! After a great deal of head-pounding on various Python resources on the web, I finally solved it and got the file unshuffled!

Thank you for your help, all!

Onward to Challenge 13! (holds breath)

<SPLOOSH!>

I am at the start of this challenge.
I know the 'dealing evil' and the image give a hint to a binary file.
But my English is very poor. I don't know the meaing of the two.
please help me!
Dose it want you to think evil person of evil thing?
I'm really puzzled.

No need to know this, the images identify themselves

I feel like an idiot

I feel like an idiot because everyone seems to have gotten to the hidden file but me. I tried changing the url to every possible combination of evil, shuffling, dealing, etc . jpg,zip, html . Am I missing something? I feel like i'm retarded :roll:

No, if you didn't find the file, you've missed a combination :wink:

What is the location of the image on the page of level 12? Don't you see something that other images don't have? (Take a good look at the name)
