    Think you could translate this into text?

    Yes, it's simple.

    One thing, the red areas don't translate into anything.

    Have you seen this before?
    I haven't seen it before, but it looks simple enough since I've been dealing with binary since middle 1977. Didn't need to reference a table for most of it, but it does look like you still have some errors, e.g. missing a letter (small L), some red bleeding into places it probably shouldn't.
    Did you code it by hand rather then have a program draw the image for you based on input? Any reason for treating spaces with a different code than normal?

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    D'oh! Lots of errors in that code, but I've corrected it.

    Niya, a flawed app generated the binary's which I copied. It would drop zeros before the first 1. I corrected this for letters, but didn't for the comma, space and period. (fixed now)

    I was also distracted last night, which is why I missed that small "L".
