Never mind, I got it. You have to remember that theres only dimension interesting, not two ;)
With the data you get, do just what you did before ;)

Read this topic through beginning to end and heed the hint I repeated earlier. If the message you get doesn't exist you did something wrong and you need to reassess your assumptions.

I think my message is corect because the sentence is perfect, the little problem is what to do with the enumerations of numbers.

Think again; if the numbers don't make sense, you made a mistake.

I'm having the same problem, but can't figure out what to do with the results. The 43 did help me, but not the i*7, maybe that's my problem ?

if you've gotten a string that contains non-printables, here's a hint (or possibly a SPOILER (WARNING)):

>>> 'havd(1) vf birexvyy'.encode('rot13')
>>> # use i*7 instead.

I've tried downloading the library at effbot, but I can't get it to work. The Windows binary can't find the registry entry, so I ran the register tool provided, but that couldn't find the python package it needed to manipulate the registry. I tried compiling from source, but it crashed, illegal operation-style. I'm running Python 2.4 under Cygwin under Windows 98.

Follow up: I'm pretty sure that this installer caused a flurble in my registry, requiring a scanreg /restore. So my advice to all of you:

DO NOT MIX CYGWIN WITH PYTHON IMAGING LIBRARY

I cannot stress that enough. Safe mode boots could result, and trust me, it wasn't fun.

BTW, if you're using Perl for this one be sure to use GD::Image->trueColor(1) before loading it or itll make an indexed image.

On the right track?

I'm pretty sure that this is not a spoiler because it didn't help me. Does 'smart guy, you mad' mean anything to you? Is it important? Am I on the right track, or have I been misled?
