It's 4 bits - 1/2 byte.

(fyi, I got this from webopedia - it's a pretty sweet site if you have more questions like this)

Easy to remember... one of the funniest things I ever had to learn
for ASM :p

Take a register, B for example:

EBX = 32 Bit
BX = 16 Bit
BH = 8 Bit

There are two nip... err... nibbles in a BH.

( If you can make sense of my rumblings, great, if not, it probaly
lost all of it's meaning in the process of translating it...
especially if BH means not the same thing in your language
as in German *eg* )

Brustwarchen heiß?

Sure, it's backwards and probably wrong, but gimme credit - they don't teach the good stuff in classes :p

>BH

I imagine it's some kind of sausage. Some kind
of little sausage that takes 1 bite to eat,
perhaps? Germany is filled with sausages.

Close, quite close :p

You'd probably call it a bra. See if it makes sense now ;)

Yes... it's Brustwarzen, but that gets partial credit ;)

I think I read a post of Govt saying he got, but he didn't
seem to mind too much, so it might have been a joke...

Sure, I said some choice words to ehsiq, and rick suggested half-jokingly that I moderate myself... I decided to do it before I got some serious complaints.

Wow! I actually got one word halfway right! Woo-hoo!

Would the "h" be whatever's German for "holder", or smth like that?
