K Think i finally remembered all the Letters i sure as heck hope you didn't use any numbers/symbols i can't remember them for the life of me!

EdBee sounds Like fun is that system still in use today?

I could do it for numbers N/P but when i'm doing Oct for Letters i Loathe it

Heck i'm gunna keep on Editing this one. i think since there might be people who read that that don't have a clue what we're talking about. how bout we educate them some.

Edit: Wopps had them backwards this is correct (i Hope)

For every letter/number/character there is a value called the ASCII value

in college i learned that 65-90 is A-Z and 97-122 is a-z (Why do you ask? Well this is one of the parts i'm explaining that i don't know the answer so i'm just giving facts)

And Every letter/number/symbol is 1 byte (8 bits) (ON=1/OFF=0)

Now here comes the not so fun part MATH! Don't worry if you can add and subtract this is EASY math!

Binary to Decimal

Converting 00001010 to Decimal

this is easy you just put your Binary number under this scale then add up the numbers above on the 1's you got your decimal number 0-255

128,64,32,16,8,4,2,1

0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 = 10 in Decimal

No Decimal to Binary

Converting 10 back into Binary

This is just as easy you take your decimal number and start from the 128 if 128 is equal or less than your decimal number you put a 1 then take that amount away if its more you put a zero then continue down the line to 64,32,16,8,4,2,1

so for our example

10 is less than 128 so

**0** 10 is less than 64 so

**00** 10 is less than 32 so

**000** 10 is less than 16 so

**0000**10 is more than 8 so

**00001**10-8=2 <new number

2 is less than 4 so

**000010**2 is equal to 2 so

**0000101**0 is less than 1 so

**00001010**Simple as that now you know how to Make Binary into Decimal you can use the ALT+ code to find out what letter was coded. you do this by holding down ALT and on the Number pad (not above the letters) type in the Number you came up with dummy me forgot to use a good example so i could show you the ALT+10 Code

Work in Progress i'll keep editing so Check back
