You initialized your message with "89, 0, 97, 0", but the instructions said to "initialize it with the following values: 89, 0, 97, 0, 121, 0, 33, 0".

Well that's embarrassing, a simple reading comprehension error. I wonder why this was not picked up as an error in the first task of the challenge?

That is curious. Perhaps you'd want to submit a bug report to Support.
