in reply to Bit operations for beginners

Cine,
I would also like to see this cleaned up so it could be considered for Tutorials. With that in mind, I have one more nit.

You may be surprised that it is not the "!" operator, which is more known as the "not" operator, but that is because "~" is the "bitwise not" operator.
The "!" operator is used to reverse a true value to false and not actually looking at the specific bits.

I would change 'which is more known as' to 'which is more commonly known as'. I would change 'The "!" operator is used to reverse a true value to false' to 'The "!" operator is used to flip flop the truth of a value from true to false or false to true'.

Cheers - L~R
