Does anyone know how to decrypt AOL referrer URLs for encoded AOL Search sites?

examples below:
1) search for 'purple pony' on aol.com
[search.aol.com...]

2) search for 'purple pony' on aolsearch.com
[search.aol.com...]

A similar thread was posted in 2003, but no one has been able to identify a proper solution:
[webmasterworld.com...]

Thanks in advance for your insight!

There was an explanation posted, though. IIRC, it's just UTF-16 encoded.
