    Look for the morse in the shape of the letters...

    OK, I think I got it.

    "Make Crypto Not Munitions"

    Every letter with a dash in it (E, T, F, Z) gets a -

    Every letter you would have to dot (I, J) gets a .

    Every letter with a v (M, V, Y) gets a ..

    Ding ding ding!!! DarkGuardian scores!

    Little precision on DarkGuaridan answer: only look at the top of the letters for the morse...

    Gotta admit it's an intersting obfuscation scheme!

    I didn't take long, once I used the example. The only tricky part was the M, V, and Y. After that, wasn't too bad.

    But I wouldn't have gotten it if it weren't for the hint for morse code.

    And you're right -- an interesting scheme.

    ok still horribly stuck on this </ignorant>

    so the first step is to run the initial code through a morse code convertor(since i dont know morse code)?
    reverse the morse code?
    then convert it back to english?

    Fist step is to take only the top pixels of the letters and put that into morse:
    eg: TF IZ TLE I => -- .- -.- . (top bar of the T, F, Z, E become "-" and top point of the I, L become "."

    Second step is to run it through a morse translator, which will give the cleartext.
