    How about only posting in HEX?

    Code:
    HEX = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E  F 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 1A
    CHAR= A B C D E F G H I J  K L M N O P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W X  Y  Z
    7FF4 9451?

    I'm still confused about Hex. Hurry, tell me
    how to read it. Base 16? What?

    Decimal is base 10 right?

    So we count.

    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    Hexadecimal is base 16:

    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F

    FWIW....

    Binary is base 2:

    0 1

    Octal is base 8:

    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

    What base is our alphabet written in? How would you
    translate Chinese to hex? Yeah, it's a good idea, da.
    I like it. Simplifies things. Write up an rfc, submit it to the
    board here, and then send it to the iso people. You'll be
    famous, pal, and I'll be able to tell all my (1) friends that I
    once knew you.

    I said "Who can't read hex? Lol!"

    I won't do it anymore if it annoys you, but I thought it was pretty easy to work out
