Crack the binary code?

Binary code

Binary code is an amazing invention. Using just two symbols, 1 and 0, you can represent simple things from numbers and letters through to much more complex data and instructions.

Rather surprisingly, for something that we would typically associate with the computer age, the binary system was invented by Gottfried Liebniz in 1689.

From its early beginnings binary code has now become the foundation stone of the technological age. Most modern computers use binary encoding for instructions and data. CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs represent sound and video digitally in binary form. Telephone calls are carried digitally on long-distance and mobile phone networks using pulse-code modulation, and on voice over IP networks.

But for our purpose it is an ideal format for a puzzle.

Can you crack the binary code?
