Cartoon Prison (Posted on 2005-05-21) Difficulty: 2 of 5
You awaken in unfamiliar surroundings as a plate of food clatters to the ground. Your sleepy eyes open to see someone exiting the room, and you hear the clank of a door locking. You realize that you’ve been taken prisoner. Later, you hear a tapping which you realize is an attempt by a fellow prisoner elsewhere in the prison to communicate with you. The code is a series of 1 to 5 taps, a short pause, then 1 to 5 taps, then a long pause. You start recording the message as a series of 2 digit numbers. Commas represent longer gaps.
What is the message, and for bonus points who is the other prisoner?

Mouse over for a hint: C and K are indistinguishable in this code.
