Yes, there is.

Now, if only I could recognize it...

Ahh, found more signal. I'm pretty sure I hear "them" referred to above, but I have no clue what they are saying.

Is there still more in the "noise"?

Any hints on interpreting "them"?

Is there any point in mucking about with the obvious standard python library module (the one that can open the attached file)? I know the sample size is 16 bit, I know the framerate, and I could muck with those values.

However, if the data should be interpreted in alternative ways, please give me hints there. Or should I look for hidden data instead. I am still too much in the dark.

Try it and see! Or, rather, try it and hear. I'll just say again that you've solved this before. So do something similar to something you did before :wink:

I allready found it, but had I sooner realized the relevance of L's technical problem, I would have found it much more easily! :)

aHA! I now understand it as well, recognized the hint, and feel quite silly. I owe everyone an apology, the result applied to me too. :lol:

On to 20!

Maybe you're listening to a "satanic message".

I finally heard what has to be the right words, but the obvious URL doesn't work.

The blame probably is on me (one of the ideas I suggested) --I just offered the hint too, thinking that it would be more obvious to non-english speaking geeks than to english ones ;-) I don't know if it worked out so, or not...

I sure hope I'm not the only one who sent suggestions; less than 100 levels are not enough!

I fear I may be responsible the idea for level 18, and who knows what future levels are going to be based on the other suggestions I made...

So either we had the same idea, or contributed different parts of the puzzle ;-)
