Naturally I started picking holes in that right away, then slapped myself and reminded me that it's a comic.. Like when we complain about how some spaceship in a sci-fi movie wouldn't be able to do what it just did..

Sydney Padua is the gold standard here, I think.

@Katharsisdrill well, the decoding of the numbers into 2x2 blocks would need the person doing the decoding to select a computer with the right character set that included the 2x2 blocks, as I don't remember them being standard, also I originally thought the 2x2 blocks were on the ZX81 rather than the Spectrum but it seems they were on both. I was wrong on the second count and might be on the first too, it has been known ;-)
