The first one that appears on Google.com :) I reread my response and noticed you do not know how binary works. 1011010 is not 14! Think of base 10. Each position represents a power of 10. i.e. 10^0, 10^1, 10^2... So 2578 = 2*(10^3)+ 5*(10^2)+7*(10^1)+8*(10^0) Binary is similar. Each position represents a power of 2. i.e. 2^0, 2^1, 2^2... So 1011010 = 1*(2^6)+0*(2^5)+1*(2^4)+1*(2^3)+0*(2^2)+1*(2^1)+0*(2^0) or 90 base 10. Kip ``` Previous message: [DPRG] ASCII??? Next message: [DPRG] ASCII???
