Wait... From ten to four.

Decimal is based on 10 numbers right? 0-9. What would "a Costume Party" be from decimal to something based on 4? Is there a code based on 4? All in know about is Binary (2), Decimal (10), and Octal (8).

Any ideas?

Base 4 math. I don't know the 'popular' name for it (quantary?) but it counts up like this:

0: 0
1: 1
2: 2
3: 3
4: 10
5: 11
6: 12
7: 13
8: 20
9: 21
10: 22
11: 23
12: 30
13: 31
14: 32
15: 33
16: 100
17: 101
18: 102
19: 103
20: 110
21: 111
22: 112
23: 113
24: 120
25: 121
26: 122

Etcetera.

Edit: to go a step further, 'a costume party' maps to the number sequence
1 3 15 19 20 21 14 5 16 1 18 20 25

which in base 4 is
1 3 33 103 110 111 32 11 100 1 102 110 121

which I notice is 30 chars, so in groups of 3:
133 310 311 011 132 111 001 102 110 121

 Original post by disease332000So I went to a website called Hack.net on a whim. It is a picture of a bug. Woohoo! I figured, however, that there had to be more to the domain "Hack.net," than a bug -- so I examined the source -- which lead me to a semi-obscure link halfway down the page to a website called Ninebows.com -- which was equally obscure. It consists of several binary numbers. I guessed that they were ACII codes, and so I converted them. The final message was "pls get /two" -- what does this mean? It is obvious that this series is a puzzle, meant to weed out the idiots (namely, me) from the real hackers. Is this some higher force I'm meddling with? What does the message mean? Could it be unicode values?

Hehe...if they were real hackers they wouldn't be trying to mess with you like that. I hate it how the media has convinced everyone into thinking we (hackers) we're malicous script kiddies who want to destroy computers. Those are crackers people *shakes head*.

Now a costume party from ten to four is the next color trend below, ten to four thats six hours, and its a color trend so it may be a color that has 6 letters in it. Costume partys are usually around halloween which the main color on halloween is orange wich has 6 letters in it

So the color trend is ORANGE.

E-Mailed him, let's see if I get MONEY. lol.
