    You're missing 1 of the digits, I think. Your message has 47 and it needs to be 48.

    In words that means:

    one, one, zero, one, one, one, one, zero, one, zero, one, zero, zero, zero, one, zero, zero, zero, one, one, zero, zero, one, one, zero, one, zero, zero, zero, zero, one, one, zero, zero, one, zero, zero, one, zero, one.

    Literally.

    ASCII to binary, every 8 bits equates to a decimal equivalent of the ASCII code for the number.

    Some binary converters only use 7 bits instead of 8 but your string isn't divisible by 7 or 8 bits.

    damnit, it was a hint for a geocaching mystery cache coord.

    I'll never find that one then.

    I don't think that it is just that he's missing a digit. If you put the first 40 binary digits in, you still don't get anything sensible: "Þ¢3C%" (assuming those special characters come through alright)

    Can you link the site directly? It might be numbers (longitude/latitude or something?). You can easily encode an integer number as any-length binary (although it would still have to be divisible by 8 for a computer to understand), because a binary number is just that number in base-2.

    Maybe decoding the code won't be as necessary as he makes it?



    Good luck.

    Answer (translation):
    From Italian: "The cache is the first in a series of five that honors Darwin's multi-cultural history. To find the container, it is necessary to decode the code below."

    The original hint is:
    be scientific

    My more advanced hint is (quite spoiling):
    Use the scientific calculator of Windows/Linux/etc to convert this binary into decimal. Then use the digits of this decimal to form a valid geo location.

    And the precise direction follows - but reading it will spoil the fun completely, so you may try it out a little bit first. :)
    Warning! (SPOILER)

    This thread disappoints me. It is only limited to using binary as a surrogate for English.
