I don't get it
I don't get it.
intArweb stUnnA tRying to be mAdD l33t y0!
other guy starts talking in binary
stunnas head explodes
True leetspeak is binary
(For those of you who dont get it..."Sho Nuff")
:doh2: I don't get it either.
just smile and nod, smile and nod
all that talk about stunnus reminds me of this pic
awright boys lets hit up walmart and pick up as much blang we can for 20 bucks. we kin make it all fancy with the computer later!
Yeah cause we only talk about cars here. I mean, it's not like you see posts about swollen testicles or something like that up do you?? E_SolSi ownz joo.
Anyway, on the binary thing.. He was saying 0's and 1's because those are the only two letters, I guess you could say, in a computers alphabet. Some professor I had said something about this. Like a computer performs processes and something can only be yes/no or on/off as an example. So you get the 0/1. Then they just use long ass chains of 0's and 1's to spell out commands or whatever. I guess thats kind of an explanation for those who didn't get it or were probably being sarcastic.
Lets see if i can explain this real quick.
Binary allows a computer to communicate extremely efficiently using only 2 characters. Most binary that you will need to know about is 8-bit (like old NES and the alphabet in this case)
8-bit binary can count up to 256 variables with 0 being a variable.
heres how it works.
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0 each zero represents a number. When the 0 becomes a 1, that number is added
1-0-0-0-1-0-1-1 acually means 128+8+2+1
Binary numbers are also used to represent text as above.
You can find that list here http://www.tekmom.com/buzzwords/binaryalphabet.html
Also another use for binary is to find out how many colors your monitor can display. If you check the display properties and it says your monitor uses 16-bit color. Your monitor can display 65,535 different colors. If it says 24-bit (usually on lower end budget cards) you can display 16,777,216 colors, and at 32-bit you can display 4,294,967,296 colors.
he orriginally posted this in the AUTOMOTIVE multimedia forum
the AUTOMOTIVE multimedia forum is for posting pictures and videos and shit that have to do with cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc..... random funny videos , pictures, etc that dont have to do with cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc..... dont belong there, so i moved it
perhaps you didnt notice the <---- that means I MOVED IT TO THE PROPER FORUM
Ever done math in binary? In my 2nd year electronics class, it was a requirment. You also learn that in binary that you can subtract by adding and divide by multiplying. That gives the disctinct advantage of using fewer transistors, less wafer real estate and fewer instructions for a processor.
The secret's in the sauce
Look, i just know how the shit works...i dont know why it works...i just like to sound smart when someone decides to whip it out and say "OH YEAH, IF YOUR A GEEK, DO YOU KNOW BINARY!?"

"Yeah bitch, I do"
Pretty funny quote here, haha.
Yes, I did notice it was moved, but only right before I posted... thats why it said my post was edited. I was gonna add something that said I knew that but then I just didn't feel like it. I assumed others would not notice and that it would still be funny. I should've added something like ESolSi > Joo.
there are 10 types of people in the word.... those who get binary, and those who don't
10 in binary = 2
0 = 0
1 = 1
10 = 2
11 = 3
100 = 4
and so on.
Separate names with a comma.
