My friend shared a challenge puzzle with me but I don't have any idea on this? I believe that it's related to ascii characters.

    $\begingroup$ Any chance we can get a transcription of the image? $\endgroup$ – eyl327 Mar 4 at 6:43
  • $\begingroup$ I don't have transcription of this image $\endgroup$ – Music 2 News Mar 4 at 6:48
  • $\begingroup$ It seems so. First step would be to convert hex (ASCII) to text. It contains some Morse code. $\endgroup$ – eyl327 Mar 4 at 6:55
  • $\begingroup$ ascii is just a system that maps numbers to characters. The numbers can be base 10, base 2, base 16, etc. In this case, it is in base 16 (since it contains letters A-F which are hex digits). $\endgroup$ – eyl327 Mar 4 at 6:59

  • $\begingroup$ How can we proceed with the below output and what it symbolizes?? $\endgroup$ – Music 2 News Mar 4 at 7:20
  • $\begingroup$ after getting these output how to proceed with this? $\endgroup$ – Music 2 News Mar 4 at 7:21
  • $\begingroup$ No idea. Since there is some punctuation and spaces. I assume rearranging the text in some way would make it readable. There are websites such as boulter.com/anagram that can help with finding words in text, but there are so many possibilities. $\endgroup$ – eyl327 Mar 4 at 7:24

    $\begingroup$ Last line is the JPG file header: FF D8 FF E0 00 10 4A 46 49 46 00 01 and like a few more after. Maybe if you reverse order of lines and open as jpg you will gett an image $\endgroup$ – htmlcoderexe Mar 4 at 16:35
