    'Binrary' sounds like 'binary'. That's why he wrote 'kind of like binrary'.

    And tommyrae - the answer is no.

    I just got it.

    That was easy one you thought about it. It takes about 5 seconds once you know the secret.

    And you can never have a number greater than 3 in the sequence... ever.

    But can you prove it?

    Why would i want to ruin it for the rest of the people who wanted to solve it?

    ok the second line describes the first line.

    in the first line there is a 1.

    the second line says "there is one 1."

    third line says "there is 2 ones."

    and such a progression to an infinite number of digits...
