do you know the puzzle and have seen a solution similar to the one on the facebook profile above before?

i think the most important step is the "double translation". the puzzle string is split into numbers and letters, and then converted into letters only - which brings up the problem of how to treat the number 24 (as either the letter X or the letters B and D).

the whole thing is extremly short and ends with 13 final resulting numbers. the total sum of these is 2643 (26 x 43 =1118, which could be regarded as a kind of self-affirmation of the solution).

what do you think about this?

this is the "puzzle" i'm talking about of course: 4638ABK24ALGMOR3YX2489RPSTOVAL
Per the 24th letter:
The Greek alphabet has 24 letters.
