Nobody knows biinary anymore...

John Jenkins:

The problem isn't that no one knows binary, the problem is that there aren't any groups. The figure has 43 digits, so it doesn't break into 7-bit or 8-bit groups for conversion.

43 is a prime, so we can't infer some other pattern (like 4 or 5 bit groups) from divisors (at least I can't)

I would have said:


john cox:


Wow. That cartoon was for YOU, my friend.

Tom Wms.:

Know binary? Hell, I can't even spell it!


Binary is Beautiful... just imagine if he'd used Hex ( base 16) instead-ha!

Well done Mr. Cox!


Hey Jenkins:
Ya'll from Texas, aren't ya?

Dr. Bob:

I think the kid is asking for a few bytes to eat.

Dr. Bob:

and he wants his eggs over easy.

but I suspect you guys had that figured out.


This 'toon is even funnier to me given that there can't be even integer-set groups.

It illustrates the waste of time & resources that many companies get into just to offer something "new" & "different" & keep the income stream flowing by playing on the "upgrade"/"obsolescence" angst of most computer geeks who have no real need for all the power afforded by the "language du jour"--or any number of its predecessors, for that matter.

This would have been my response...

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Response as string
'Declare a variable
Response = InputBox("How do you want those eggs cooked?")
'Set variable to user input using the InputBox function
Response = "I want my eggs " & Response
'Use the & operator to create a user friendly text string
MsgBox Response
'display the value of the variable using the MsgBox function
End Sub

...but joy of joys, Microsoft decided to stop supporting Visual Basic for Applications & introduced a whole new infernal "language".

The blood & sweat I put into learning VBA to link data from a database utility to a spreadsheet (& build GUIs to use the data), & now I have to learn a whole new language?

I started with BASIC, & I must have learned a dozen languages or special code sets (not counting revisions) through the years. The tedium of memorizing language hierarchies bores me witless. I REALLY have to fight through my impatience to do it, & as I get older, I fail to see the point. Life is short. I have better things to do with my time than learning & re-learning duplicate technologies that differ only in terms of nomenclature.

I think I'll devote the rest of my life to building a trebuchet that hurls PCs & analog TVs (with long power & coaxial cables--with either an MS wallpaper or the channel tuned to MSNBC) for trap practice with a 4 gauge punt gun loaded with 00 buck. Even if I miss, I can watch Keifum's head smash into the ground. HOORAH!



I'm listening to "Fox & Friends" while I surf. They just had somebody write in with a great counter-term for the "TBer" term you hate so much.

It's perfect.



Won't be long before every new-born will get a cell phone implant and a permanent cell number that will double as personal identifier/name.

What's your name? "18399352856".



That would definitely work. I was toying with idea of using a "counter-term" (as you put it) in what I'm working on now, but I've decided against it.

I don't like the material I write when I let myself sink to the level of such small minds & allow myself to be distracted from ideas by such juvenile tactics.

This being off-topic for the thread, I'll stop now.



I've never considered myself a dispensationalist--but shouldn't all of those numbers have 3 sixes in them?


I know some people to whom that SHOULD apply.

I absolutely liked viewing your story. I’ll be back soon to check it out again. Rickie from the blog Touch Screens.

You certainly have some agreeable opinions and views. Your blog provides a fresh look at the subject.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
