I read half way through this before realizing that there was something wrong with it. I was amazed to say the least.

Ahhh, they have figured out how dyslectic people read I see.

I must admit that your message is sort of garbled to read, but other then that, it makes total sense to me.
I think I will print it to show other people how some text looks to me.

Thanks adn heva a ncie dya,

Ylorea

p.s. Normal text is a lot easier to read I must say

...I reflexively tend to notice incorrectly-spelled words, although I can still read the mutilated words...

And you're right, Eph. Some words  are already ending up that way.
"I grab the sword!"
"Mmkay, you're dead."
"What!?"
"You just grabbed the sword of the god you were just personally responsible for banishing from the world for the next ten thousand years. You just got zapped by around a billion volts of Angry Divine Power. You're dead."

Elevtindy enourores intimarofon but I see your point. I could understand it quite quickly, but noticed the spelling mistakes immediately. However, I agree. WOW!!!! (Walking on Water). Some of us already use a very similar anagramatic code. Tell me how quickly you got the first three words, which are specially designed to confuse.

I certainly had to take a moment to suss out some words, but context helps, so once you’ve got Cambridge, University just follows. I wonder how easy IMPORTANT would have been as a single word? Since I’ve been on the internet, I’ve noticed how many times people key letters in the wrong order. I quite often have to correct myself. In an ordinary text, this misspelling is quite distracting, but then it doesn’t have to follow these rules. Try this, it’s very easy. Sdrawkcab etirw ot desu I.

The question was 6 times 9, which is fifty four, which is 42 in base thirteen. So, if you turn to page 42 of the Illuminatus Trilogy, the fifth line, fourth word (54), is RIGHT. (interestingly, line six, word nine, is NINE).

There are 10 kinds of people, those who understand binary, and those who don't?

Anyone wanna take a crack at this one? :D

Let me rephrase this: There are 1 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
The 0, that do not and the 1 that do.

By the way I belong to the category 0.

Yours,

Ylorea

It's a popular geek thing. You can find shirts, mugs, and bumper stickers with it at the Thinkgeek website.

Behold, the power of binary!

I am afraid it does not translate very well into English, but lets try anyway. I hope you guys get the drift.

A popular joke among mathematicians:

A math teacher meets up with his college and informs him: I have spent two hours trying to teach my pupils that two halves are equal, but the bigger half of them still does not understand.
