How many people can read hex if only you and dead people can read hex?

    I can read hex, pretty simple, pretty useless.

    DEAE. I understand hex, but man was not made to think in base 16. Now I am sad and need a nap.

    @just-basic-user it's a joke, read it again and try to read hex in it

    HINT: 57006 is the answer.

    @lucaIO that's a hell of a hint.

    @PonySlaystation no, 0xDEAE, but now everybody knows the answer :(

    @lucaIO I know, but in this case he didnt write the 0x as prefix 😉

    False. 42. Pineapple.

    Shit, can you repeat the question?

    Ohhh I had to read the frase like three times to understand it was a riddle. I need to fucking get used to read tags... I get why DEAD+1=DEAE. But is there actually people that learn the powers of 16?

    They can be learnt by heart until 65536, but I can't think why someone would go further. I mean, in binary you can just keep multiplying by two, but to multiply 65536 by 16 just to get to the power of 16 I haven't memorised? I don't want to make my brain kill itself.

    Jokes like that are the reason why my first android app project was a base converter.... you can translate everything from any base between 2 and 36 to any other base in that range

    @needToRoll I once tried to make a base ~100 translator. I gave up when I realized that what I was doing was very nerdy, even by my standards, and I sobered up. Also it would not work universally and that made me sad.

    @projektaquarius well the algorithm itself is is pretty simple the only question is what to use to represent values grater than 36 because the alphabet is out of elements

    @needToRoll yeah that was the issue I have. Representing the higher numbers. This was years ago too so I may not have been able to figure out the algo.

    Once it was very interesting to me, but now the need has disappeared as much as possible even to read such codes not only for work

    In general, you can learn Latin along with the hex code, then it will be a perfect combination
