Here is jynx's response back, and I think this will be the final version. It sure looks compact and unreadable to me now. And, yup, it was an enjoyable excersize...

update: after reading fsn's scratchpad (which betters my attempts a bit :), there are two last things i can think of that may help: (1) reducing one more variable (2) removing the do{} block...
$_=ord substr"1234567 89:her;k<t=alcjusnop",(($_&240)==48?$_& 15:-1+print chr)*2+((ord(substr"\x00\x50\xA5\xd2\xc5\xbb\x96". "\xef\x06\xbc\x8e\xe0",$;/8,1)&2**(7-$;++%8))?1:0),1while$;<92
Note how since the variable $: was removed, the $; limit had to be increased to 92 to accomodate and finish printing the string. Also the ==0 check was removed and the ==91 check changed to <92...

Don't know if it's more or less obfuscated, and as i've said i'm not very good, but it seems to be more difficult to parse. i had fun with this exercise, and i hope fsn did as well :-)
