Yes, I did get it down.  I'm not convinced 120 is the minimum... I feel 
like another character or two might be possible somehow, but I haven't 
figured anything out.  The details: 2 lines, only uses the functions 
''.join, int, and ord, plus some operators and loops, and 27 total 
characters of string literal.  Python gives me a warning when I run it, 
but it works.
