I'll be completely honest. I feel like a retarded donkey. I have still not figured this out after reading all the posts. Sure, I figured out how to solve it with Firebug, but that's not solving, that's just cheating, and I'm not here to score points, but to learn.
After reading the entire thread and still being stuck, I kind of raged and decided to try to find a video tutorial on youtube. There were lots, almost 10 of them, and EVERY SINGLE ONE used some goofy "translator" or FireBug to solve it. If FireBug can solve it, so can we.
But how? I can manualle convert hex / binary / ascii between each other, but it takes forever, and people are mentioning how easy it is. Then again, 90% of the people saying it was easy also used FireBug or some other addon, and this is irrelevant for me.
I'm sure there is a faster way to do it than I have tried and it's probably laughing me right in the face, but for now, I am blind.
Anyone who could PM me with a friendly kick in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
