## Aligned to 1

Every number with a 1 above it means: Align the inner 1 with the outer E (0 means skip and put 0 in the final solution), which you can see in this picture:

Since the first character is 6, look for 6 on the outside ring, and see what it aligns with on the inside. Using the picture, you can see that 6 aligns with 5. So, you write down 5:

Align #: 11211211211211201120112011 Code: 6B36676B38B2B2E03EE03AE033 =: 5 0 0 0

Let's go ahead and do all the 1's first since we're already aligned to it. The second one is B so look for B on the outer ring. You'll see that it aligns with 4:

Align #: 11211211211211201120112011 Code: 6B36676B38B2B2E03EE03AE033 =: 54 0 0 0 HEX: T

Now we have our first letter in the solution because T is 54 in HEX. Keep filling out the rest of the 1's, and it will end up looking like this:

Align #: 11211211211211201120112011 Code: 6B36676B38B2B2E03EE03AE033 =: 54 55 54 94 47 031 032 033 HEX: T T G 1 2 3

## Aligned to 2

Every number with a 2 above it means: Align the inner 2 with the outer E, which you can see in this picture:

The first character with a 2 above it is 3. So, look for 3 on the outer ring, and we can see that it aligns with 4:

Align #: 11211211211211201120112011 Code: 6B36676B38B2B2E03EE03AE033 =: 54455 54 94 47 031 032 033 HEX: T E T G 1 2 3

Now we have an E, because E is 45 in HEX. The next number with a 2 above it is 7. So look for 7 on the outside ring and you see that it aligns with 3 on the inner ring:

Align #: 11211211211211201120112011 Code: 6B36676B38B2B2E03EE03AE033 =: 54455354 94 47 031 032 033 HEX: T E S T G 1 2 3

Finish aligning and filling out the ones with 2 above it and you'll end up with this:

Align #: 11211211211211201120112011 Code: 6B36676B38B2B2E03EE03AE033 =: 54455354494e47203120322033 HEX: T E S T I N G 1 2 3
