    The e-mail signature is a 1337 way to hide the address from scrapers and other phishing mail extraction bots. It's just some ASCII character code juggling written in PowerShell and results in

    m e l i s s a . r a d e m a n n @ j u d . s t a t e . m a . u s

    If you want to try it, here's the statement in clear text: [string](0..31|%{[char][int](46+("6355625969695100685154556351646418607154006970517055006351007169").substring(($_*2), 2))})-replace''

    The white spaces can be removed by using changing the very last parameter to -replace' ' (there's a space character between the single quotes)

    I had a friend who was absolutely obsessed with the Beatles, and wanted to collect every release they ever made.

    I told him, "You need help."

    He said, "No, I've got that one."

    I second, and I don't even like the Beatles! Also, not so cryptic ;)

    My favorite beatle is the 1953 with oval windows.

    I'm feeling pretty foolish as I don't understand what's going on in the first one (other than the repeating album.) There's no prices to "save up for" so that aspect of the 'you figure it out' punchline leads me no where.

    Anyone want to ELI5?

    I asked ChatGPT to decode it, and it got so close

    m e l i s s a . rad

    Then started spewing out gibberish as it dropped a digit somewhere.

    If you would like to generate your own Powershell signature, do this to get the number sequence:

    "[email protected]".ToCharArray().ForEach({([int]$_-46).ToString("00")}) -join ""
