It’s time to sleep again, folks: today’s date is another binary number, **111011**.

Someone Yahooed to ask, *how to change a base 10 number into a binary number? the number is 111011*. And here’s the answer – in fact, the best answer, as chosen by voters; who knew maths was so democratic?

*

*111011, base 2*

*= 1(2^5) + 1(2^4) + 1(2^3) + 0(2^2) + 1(2^1) + 1(2^0)*

*= 32 + 16 + 8 + 0 + 2 + 1*

*= 59, base 10*

*For the other way, decimal to binary:*

*59, base 10*

*Can 2^6 fit into 59? No. *

*Can 2^5 fit into 59? Yes.*

*59−32*

*=27*

*Can 2^4 fit into 27? Yes.*

*27−16*

*=11*

*Can 2^3 fit into 11? Yes.*

*11−8*

*=3*

*Can 2^2 fit into 3? No.*

*Can 2^1 fit into 3? Yes.*

*3−2*

*=1*

*Can 2^0 fit into 1? Yes.*

*1−1*

*=0*

*So, let’s look at what we have for our answers:*

*No (0)*

*Yes (1)*

*Yes (1)*

*Yes (1)*

*No (0)*

*Yes (1)*

*Yes (1)*

*Hmm… read it from top to bottom (ignore any zeroes in the beginning): 111011.*

*59, base 10 = 111011, base 2*

***

So there you have today’s date: of the geekest, by the geekest, for the geekest.

love your geek. I learned to count in hexadecimal (fortunately in the summer) by using 6 toes as well 😉

However we won’t go wandering around there, it’s only relevant when you have a need of digital counting.

I can also count in alcoholic

Oh the date in binary is far too logical Tilly, from my alien perspective not AT ALL Geeky.

Now…let’s get geeky shall we and I’ll give you the date in Vulkan. giggle
