You should be able to tell what I'm saying by looking at what I'm doing with my hands and combining the expressions on my face. Just be careful to mind your p's and q's (and your i's and j's).

Everything above this line is part of the clue. This is my first puzzle; not sure on the difficulty so let me know how you get on. Good luck!

Nice question! Partial answer below?

This uses a clock face and something... The times are encoded as HHMMHHMM... where HH is a two-digit hour and MM is a two-digit minute. Some are more than 12, so a 24-hour face may be necessary.

The message can be broken down thus:

0440
0610
0200
0400
1810
1205
0930
0520!
0000
1010
1410
1335
0210
0645
0800
0820
1130
0605
0230
0555
0120
0540
0550
0720
0000
1035.

Which translates to... still working on it.

    $\begingroup$ Good start! Small hint: A letter can have multiple encodings, but any given encoding will only decode back to one letter in the vast majority of cases. $\endgroup$ – CDJB Nov 13 at 20:26
