### Binary Puzzle

11/01/2012 4:21 PM

Ello ello all. Instead of swarming the active blogs with silly little puzzles, I'll just post them as threads here. Anyways, without further ado:

01100010 01010011 00100001 01101110 00110100 01101000 01010001 01010001

01011110 01010101 00100001 01101001 01101110 01100011 01101111 01110010

01110010 01100101 01100011 01110100 00100000 00100101 01101000 01100001

01101000 01100001 00111101 01101110 01101111 01110000 01100101 00101010

00100000 01110111 01100001 01111001 00100000 01101100 00110000 01101100

Hint: You're looking to get five alpha-numerical values to put into this url: "http://imgur.com/XXXXX"
Hint: Having some knowledge of binary could be useful.
Hint: You only need to decode it once.
Hint: What you need is hidden in plain sight.
Hint: Decoding is the last step.

Subscribe to this thread if you're interested in following along. I'll post the answer on Saturday
