border bytes

cracking the code of the itanimulli riddle

Are bytes still bytes if they don't mean anything? That's beyond my philosophical horizon, but we have some bytes to decipher here:

@davedarko suggested to use the signs of the symbols (=borders) to build some bytes, while @alpha_ninja mumbled somthing about unicode, so let's look into that, those are the bytes:

Well.. unless these are some kind of elb-writings, I guess it's not unicode. However, maybe we could read it with the right key to decrypt it. For a byte key, there are only 255 possibilities, right? Let's try them all..

Error 413

Couldn't post them all due, too much for had.io. It's mostly rubbish anyway. The key probably has more than 8 bit.

maybe it decodes the 12x12 xor tyle somehow? 12 is way to dominant.

  Are you sure? yes | no

That's possible, I have to test that. Although this would mean that this 12x12px tile decodes the noisemap whereas the decoded noisemap, on a symbol level, decodes the tile again. That is exactly the type of recursive fractalism my prof warned me about @_@

  Are you sure? yes | no
