    ok, WITHOUT using any online or offline super-duper calculating thingies, just you own knowledge of binary, tell me what

    0000,0011 means

    when this is done, i'll post a harder one


    and NO CHEATING!

    Rather than doing a simple 1=a, 2=b, 3=c etc... Why not a real challenge eh? How about make it actual ASCII? Or even better Huffman Compression!

    And 1010 1101 is 173 or is it 0xAD? Actually its just 0255.

    How about this: what is 1011 1010 + 0100 0111 ?

    bleh i gave up on reading binary, hex and...ok can't even remember what the other one was called...

    i actually knew all three at one time but i didn't really practice it enough to know it by heart.

    OK so I was bored and decided to revive this thing...
    Here's the deal I'm gonna post a full sentence in binary,
    using the American Standard Code for Information Interchange
    (ASCII). Try to decode it yourself using the table I'll post a link to.
    As you will note the table does not provide the binary translation, so
    you'll have to convert the binary to either decimal, hex or octal first.
    After a couple people have given it a shot, I'll post a spiffy little way
    to convert from binary to octal and hex. Believe me, it is so much easier.

    Anyway here's the sentence (I hope it's not too cheesy):

    Code:
    0000 0010 0100 0010 0110 1001 0110 1110 0110 0001 0111 0010
    0111 1001 0010 0000 0110 1001 0111 0011 0010 0000 0110 0110
    0111 0101 0110 1110 0010 0001 0000 0011
    Also, I hope I translated everything ok... I did it all in my head.

    Oh, and here's the website with the ASCII table.
