A while ago I gave out this graphical puzzle for your delight and amusement.
If you have not yet solved the puzzle, I suggest that you have a go before moving on
The solution didn't lie in manipulating the bits into numbers, in some clever binary code or similar.
The solution was purely graphical, and inspired by an advert for Volkswagen on TV at the moment.
The solution rests in sliding the bottom half of the image over the top half. Text rapidly appears.
If you would like to see the solution, I've made one available here. It is an animated gif, made for me by Hobnobs, and as such might not animate if you are using an older browser or have switched animations off.
