There are 10 kinds of people in the world — those who understand binary, and those who don’t.
I remember when I learned to count that way, but I wasn’t that young!
He must be so proud!
Someone teaches how to use a table edge to separate up and down fingers to count to 1023.
binary doesn’t have a 1023!
He’s not much of a geek if he’s just counting to 1010 on his fingers.
He’ll graduate into full geekdom when he starts getting Christmas and Halloween mixed up.
You are a real geek if you can do it in base 8 or base 3
oh my I think I’m catching a code.
Is it bad that I counted along with her and laughed. Does anyone learn to count in hex or octal anymore?
When I go and do laps around the track at the gym, I count to 16 on one hand. 16 laps is one mile. I use the other hand to keep track of the miles.
I have to be careful with 11(base 10), or 0100(base 2), because someone might think I’m making a rude gesture.
I feel sorry for her, even if she will make a million dollars by the time she is 18.
Actually, if you use both hands you can count to 1111111111.
Actually, if you designate each finger as a bit, you can count to 1023.
Can’t wait till she gets to 42.
Binary exists because computers are primitive and stupid.
Use gray code binary if you are feeling jittery.
Proudest. Daddy. EVER!!!
Around 1990 I took a course in 8086 Assembler. The teacher was a retired programmer who began his career in the 1950s. When we got to base conversion he said, “What I do is convert everything to octal. Convert the source number to octal and then convert the octal number to the target base.” He could do it in his head, fast. 8 bit machine words.
