    Prince Charles saying "IO".


    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.

    The start of some sanity?

      When I see it like that I think of the Enterprise D.

      The first thing I did when seeing this poll was to search for Bo Derek.
      You and I, sir, are showing our age. :-)

    16, which should have been an option IMHO ;)

      And why didn't you comment on that before it became a poll? :)

      Why not 8? Are we done with octal?

        Are we done with octal?

        I've been done by octal too many times :)

        I hate that most programming languages insist on interpreting numbers with leading xeros as octal.

        Personally, I've never seen any utility in octal that wasn't better served by hex.

    Reminds me of college in 1982 when I spent one whole day ferreting out an LC letter L where a One should be amongst reems and reems of greenbar for a Fortran program.

    It was a typo that was hard to break, having been deliberately trained to type LC Ls for One and capital O's for Zero on an IBM Selectric typwriter in my high school typing class ten years earlier and having done it all that time prior to college.

      When you say "LC letter", i think Lewis Carrol letter. Then again, with his games and math, he might have enjoyed our little poll.

        And when I see LC, I think of inductance and capacitance, since I recently helped my step-son out with the odd electronics and software questions while he was at Ryerson. Yep, still remember that stuff from university in the 70's and 80's.

      Why on Earth did they deliberately train you to do that?!

      It's been a good many years since I've even seen a typewriter, but I can't remember them being constrained to the digits 2 to 9. They had 1 and 0 keys. Why not use them?

        Having a separate 1 key was an innovation that came fairly late in the game. Older typewriters didn't have it, and it wasn't until the late 1970s that you could count on it being there. So people were taught to type without it.

    Time to go to bed?

    I could see 'late for work', but I generally don't go to bed 'til 2300 or later.

    time to go to bed (looking at my digital watch)

    time to go to bed

    time = 20 + 9 + 13 + 5 = 47

    to = 20 + 15 = 35

    go = 7 + 15 = 22

    to = 20 + 15 = 35

    bed = 2 + 5 + 4 = 11

    47 + 35 + 22 + 35 + 11 = 150

    (looking at my digital watch)

    looking = 12 + 15 + 15 + 11 + 9 + 14 + 7 = 8

    at = 1 + 20 = 21

    my = 13 + 25 = 38

    digital = 4 + 9 + 7 + 9 + 20 + 1 + 12 = 62

    watch = 23 + 1 + 20 + 3 + 8 = 55

    83 + 21 + 38 + 62 + 55 = 259

    259 + 150 = 409

    409? He thought really clean up with that one. ha ha ha...ferget it

      brilliant :)

    There are 10 kinds of people:
    those who understand binary,
    those who understand Gray code,
    and those who don't.
      Grey code? Is that some sort of American interloper, like the squirrel?
        *Post deleted* need more coffee.
      This is awesome, I never heard about this before but I'll think of it next time I have to try all combinations of a set of switches, which is more often than you'd think :-D

    I think '1010', and then I'm recursively entangled.
