30 would probably be a good place to stop. Let me know when someone gets to that, err... waitaminnit...

Nobody's mentioned octal yet-- come on now! 36

hey check it out lets make our own crazy ass code for numbers for example:


AE.....is that right?

Erm... what would the base be on that one? If that's supposed to be 31, I guess that 32 would be AF?

I'm confused now... :(

lol, yea, if you go through the alphabet and go through a-z, then when you start over on the alphabet and keep counting like 52 would be AAA ;)

I think everybody went a bit astray back with Alex's post, and perhaps it might have been a good place to stop after all. But dammit! I never give up!

The count was sidetracked when it got to 30, so this post makes it 31. Continuing with Octal that makes it:

37

0

But there have been several posts which never advanced the count, and this post really makes it only 32. My previous post stated 37, which is octal for decimal 31!

In binary, that makes the count now:

00100000

what?! ok ok this counting thing has gone totally haywire....heh, who would of thought..........1

If people had kept up with the counting like we were asked to (:p), we'd be at 00100100 by now. Get with it, people!

im thoroughly confused.......would you mind translating your octal smoctal code for me? Just to see where you, the omniscient cookie monster, say we are, seriously, im not trying to be an ass.

They're not codes, simply different counting and numbering systems.

Binary = base 2
Octal = base 8
Decimal = base 10
Hexadecimal = base 16

You should already be familiar with decimal numbering, see here for an explanation of binary and hexadecimal:

In decimal numbers, the count is still up to 32, because I've not added to it with this post!

AHA! After studying i have seen the light and understand, thank you catweazel! 00100100 = 36 so therefore we are on(drum roll).............00100101

yea, school is quite boring now that i am a senior. Haha, today on my vocab test i wrote the date in binary, that'll have my english teacher scratching her head :cheesy: ......00101001

lol, thats a good idea. Let us know what your teacher ends up saying (=.

I think im #51!

Including this post we are on 42, we had confusion somewhere along the lines lol, haha and i will keep you posted on my teachers reaction.

What would be even cooler-- write your first name or your initials in ASCII binary codes. That'll really throw 'em for a loop!

44? That's wrong though ;) If we count Sphyenx as being 42, then I am 45 :)

101100

Now you're just being ippity, and trying to confuser us all! :P

If we count Sphenx, I'm 46, if not, I'm 45!

(im not really mad :D )

I'm either 46,47, or 48 at this point... um...

Are you sure you're not mad? You're the one who started this crazy thread! :P
