My boss started passing all of his messages through some obfuscation software, and I think he's got some information involving my salary in one of those files down there -- or maybe he's just messing around. Either way, can you figure out what's up?

    It took a long time, but not ten thousand hours, thankfully. I was sweating about half-way through when I thought I wasn't doing it right.

    Actually, i don't enjoy such tasks most of the time. But this was really nice. Reeeeally nice. Thanx a lot!

    Running the file results in a 'list index out of range' Is this a problem with the question? Or is it part of the question? :)

      Part of the question! The redacted thing might not share the same characteristics as its placeholder ^-^

    These kinds of methods are awesome, very good challenge!
