    No, nobody has yet told me this puzzle.

    EDIT: ok, gotta think a little. To be honest, I don't see any connection between the number-letters.

    It's hexadecimal number notation, 4 binary digits represent one hexadecimal #. Like 0000= 0, 0001= 1, 0010=2, 0011=3 and so forth, but instead of stopping at 9 it goes like this: 1000=8, 1001=9, 1010= A, 1011=B, 1100=C, 1101=D, 1110=E, 1111=F
    so in Hex, 11111111=FF and 00000000 =00, 11111000=F8 and so forth.
    It lets you contract binary digits down to one symbol for 4 binary digits.
    1111=F=15 in decimal land, 1010=A=10 in decimal. So just sub those letters to convert to decimal and then decode the decimal. No big deal.
    The above hex converts to ASCII, which is just what a printer understands, like the first digit, 53 is S. That should be a big hint.

    I know hexadecimals. I even wrote a neat little program in PASCAL that converts a number from any number system from binary to 36, to any number system from binary to 36, for example 13 to 27. Why 36? Because that's the most I could do with all capital Latin alphabet letters.

    What I don't see, is how these numbers are connected to each other. How to continue the line.

    EDIT: Oh, should've read your whole post.

    They're ascii letters, conversion table here:

    Thank you, I already found a converter.
