in thread 3-byte representation

I'm pretty sure that the only 6-bit byte machines still running -- if any at all -- will be in museums.

These days, the most likely candidates are DACS, sound-cards, maybe video, and GPS type hardware.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
