There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who get binary, and those who don't.

Fixed it for you..... That way it is more ocnfusing for those who do not know what BCD is. Working on the SPG-60, part of the MK-86 GFCS, BCD was a second language that i was very fluent in. Virtually all T/S and maintenance/alignments involved BCD data entry and recall.

BCD != Binary

For instance

The number 16 in BCD: 001 110
The number 16 in Binary: 10000

Binary is a base two numbering system.
Binary Coded Decimal is a form of Binary, mainly used as a simple means of transmitting numbers across a data bus (as I'm sure you're aware)

Once the junior geek signals that the bully danger has passed, the senior geeks emerge from their basements, shielding their eyes against the sun...
