Yerfdog The Mysterious Symbol

OK, I've had in my sig for a while now. But what could it mean? Perhaps you'll never know. However, if people want, I can put messages into the same code. It has A-Z, numbers and (),.&?!/ No way of showing capitals though.

Default Re: The Mysterious Symbol

Edit:
Baudot, I see.

I'm decoding it as UTS7 if you feed the tape one way, and MEH. if you feed it the other. I'm positive the second way is correct by viewing the source of the image.

I feel the same way...
MEH.

Baudot? Wow, you managed to come-up with a proper code thing. I just knew it was the code thing in Coldplay's X&Y album.

Backwards, its 00010|10100|10110 or 02|14|16 or <LF>HP

It's not incoded in Baudot, it seems.

It's not quite the same system. You almost got it right though...

(Hint: 001101 is the first character.)
