Decode This (in Contests)
And tell me who the song is by:
Wow..is this pheonetically or is it in the numbers?
nobody can figure this out?

What gives you the idea that this is simple? There isn't much to decode, which means there isn't much material to help you rule out possibilities.

This could translate into Wingdings for all I've been able to figure out.
gosh maybe you plug it into 5x9-09238490823+5938x9182 and then you divide the numbers so you get a letter :P

cool, Yahoo does math :-)
best I got was "war caw" if you correspond the numbers with the letters on the keyboard starting from q and going right
Dudley you are on the right track. Except I don't know where you got that c from unless you have a different kind of keyboard.
And Vestax I never said it was simple, just surprised nobody figured out, usually people on here are good at this stuff. So calm down.
regular keyboard...c is number 22.
Hope you don't post a hint while I'm at school
Here's the hint, S is number 22.
It's a very weird coincidence that your method came out with almost the same answer, but you were definitely on the right track with the decoder.
Or Rancid. Or Darkness Remains. Or Swing Kids.
Bast got it.
Dudley, you had to think vertical instead of horizontal.
2 is W because W is one down from 2. Hence, one 2.
22 is S because S is two down from 2. Hence, two 2's.
I'm glad you said Joy Division, because that is who I was implying. The true makers of the song.
Aww man I spend hours on this :(
awww man...just went I left for school. Thanks for the hint :)
Well, at least there was no prize :)
azerty or qwerty keyboard?
