A coded message appears on the next page. The cipher-text was created by XORing the characters of a password, repeated as necessary, with the characters of the plain-text. The numbers are the ascii ordinals of the cipher-text characters; the cipher-text is given in that form in order to bypass the limitations of some browsers. The password consists of less than twenty alphanumeric characters (upper-case letters, lower-case letters, and digits). The plain-text consists of ascii text (printable characters, plus spaces and newlines) in English.

Determine the password and read the coded message.
