The data was transmitted from device to server using HostM's MySQL  
HTTPS API Solution 1.1.3 @  
https://www.hostm.com/tutorials/livecode/api-mariadb-mysql (amazing  
tool and web host).

It looks like they are sending as "utf-8" (though for a short time in  
a few versions it was implementing "base64" according to their change  
log). Is there any sort of universal format stripper? Like a "convert  
to plain text" option.
