In case you are bored already, here is a little puzzle.

0x2542af2a8fc283c5 is a message encoded with the code below, decode the message
static ulong encode(string msg)
{
    ulong msg_bits = BitConverter.ToUInt64(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(msg), 0);
    return msg_bits ^ (msg_bits >> 3) ^ (msg_bits >> 13) ^ (msg_bits >> 47);
}
The message consists of two words and some punctuation so a correct result should be easy to recognize.
