A Facebook Duel of Geek Proportions

A recent Facebook update by a friend read:
Alex is wondering if anyone can explain in one paragraph how to setup a simple mailto contact form on IIS 6.0 (that doesn'Alt like perl - I normally use FormMail).
So, being the snot I have grown to be, I commented back:
Kim is wondering if she has ever seen a geekier FB update than this nonsense. Please, next time just put in some unix code and dispense with the formalities of actual words.
To which, he replied:
Kim, you're right. This is for you:
01001001001000000110001101
10000101101110001001110111010000100000011000100110010101101100011010010110010101110110011001010010000001111001011011110111010100100000011000010110001101110100011101010110000101101100011011000111100100100000011011000110111101101111011010110110010101100100001000000111010001101000011010010111001100100000011101010111000000101110001000000010000001001110011011110111011100100000011101110110100001101111001001110111001100100000011101000110100001100101001000000110011101100101011001010110101100101110
To which, I replied:
OMG, CLASSIC. YOU WIN!!! Or should I say:
01001111 01001101 01000111 00101110 00100000 01000011 01001100 01000001 01010011 01010011 01001001 01000011 00101110 00100000 01011001 01001111 01010101 00100000 01010111 01001001 01001110 00100001 00100001 00100001
Why? Go here, paste the binary code (all them 0101010s up there) into the second box on the grid, hit , and then... well... you just have to laugh at me (and then perhaps, yourself...).
