The only reason you need some software is to zoom in on the picture. As for how to read it; just read it.

Bonus points if you write the programmatic solution btw. Well, you won't really get any bonus points on HBH, but just imagine them in your head when you're done.

He meant me; rude people get better treatment here.

Hmm, black and white...true and false...maybe something other?
It is actually something very basic, the main part of computer brain.

And you read it from left to right.

I spent 2 hours tipping part of the answer...if you know programing then it's much easier.

Just try to replace the black and white parts YOURSELF...you'll need some time for that, but sometimes it's faster then searching for other solutions.

Hmm, try to convert only the first row, if you get some words that make sense, you're on the right way...then continue with the rest.

When I did this by hand , there was definitely something missing from the end of my conversion , even after going over it again and again , eventually i just added 'something' to the end of my string and it finally converted to text .

well, since you still haven't completed steg5...

step 1: check articles
http://www.hellbo. . .-easy.html
Photoshop has express downloads (free)

step 2: Search online
http://www.google. . .tnG=Search

If that didn't work, then start a movie and write out a ton of binary (left to right, top to bottom, one line at a time). Then translate and fix the punctuation. woot.

You have a space character at the end of every row, just delete it and then decode the code.

You probably just missed a pixel or two. You're doing everything as you should so try it again and it should work.
