Ah Ha!

So cool! Thanks for the explanation

So following that logic, could we then mask off the first four bits with 077777?

but that would only be 15 bits, not 16, so probably not.

(Side note, I thought there were 8 bits to a byte?)

    Of course you are right, a byte is (usually) 8 bits, I meant to say the first half byte, but my fingers did not obey my mind. I made the correction in my post.
