I’m hexed once again

April 17th, 2002

Dave chuckles at the hexadecimal nature of 0xDECAFBAD.

This year is the last year for some time that I’ll be able to fall back on hexadecimal as the obfuscator of my antiquity, for today, I turn 0×29.

I can cry far and wide:

Today I am 29!(in hexadecimal)

But next year I turn 0x2A. Maybe that’s why 42 is the meaning of life, the universe and everything. I won’t be able to use the hex trick again until April 17th, 2009, when I turn 0×30.

There’s gotta be a term for those years of lost hexadecimal innocence between (decimal) 42 and 47. How about The Alpha Years.

  2. Heh, better hex than octal (051) or binary (101001) :)

    Happy Birthday!
