What exactly is this system about? I can see that they've simplified character representation such that 'a' is 00001, and so on, but how is pi being represented? One digit of decimal needs four digits of binary, and the section of the binary shown preceding my name is eight bits, which suggests that, indeed, that is the case. Heh, oh well, I'm in there:

search string = "daniel"
30-bit binary equivalent = 001000000101110010010010101100

search string found at binary index = 3022627669
binary pi : 0011010100100000010111001001001010110010010101001011100111111101

Strangeness.

It seems to be using 5 bits to represent a character,

so 'a' = 00001
'b' = 00010
'c' = 00011

... and so on. And then your 30 bit binary string is just 6x5 bits for each character in 'daniel'.

EDIT: sorry, yes, I should learn to read posts I'm replying to, shouldn't I? Maybe it's using a 5-bit representation of the 0-9? That would be a bit crap, though, wouldn't it? But hey, this is just for amusement.

EDIT: no, that's obviously crap...

The answer is sure to be in one of those linked documents, but I don't really want to plough through them until I find it ;) I'm just lazy :P Some sort of explanation on their site (especially to what this hex mode is for - maybe some of us have lucky charm hex strings? ;) would be nice. Anyhow, here you are:

The original works of Shakespeare were in Klingon as everyone knows, so the first thing to do is get hold of an original copy - then you will have more luck locating them... Actually, given that Klingon differentiates between 'Q' and 'q', the fact that this system is only lowercase, means it makes it a slight amount too easy... ;)
