24hrs to decrypt this, any ideas?
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm new to devshed.
All I know is that it's two words and doesn't use any standard cyphers.
Good luck, and thanks!

For any given random set of bytes, then
are equally probable.
You can't just say "here are some bytes, decode them", because there is no information to say whether X or Y is actually a better answer.

It's two words, the first being 2 letters, the second being 7. 29 characters total, so each 3 number string translates to a letter.
634 and 203 both appear twice.
Does that help, or is it still impossible?
