I pasted my string of digits into one of those online converters and was given an error because what I entered was not divisible by 8. So I'm thinking that this is the missing thing mentioned earlier?
A logical place to put the missing digit would be the start or end so I did, and came up with a six character string that made sense. wasn't correct though, so I started working my way through methodically, one place at a time with each of the two digits. There were several results that looked promising, but no joy.
Am I moving in the right direction?
I have tried to be reasonably vague and unspoilerific, sorry if I have failed.
There's nothing that hasn't alread been mentioned in the thread. But you are definitely on the right track. Try redoing what you've done. It should turn out.
