Binary Translations
Binary is the pattern of 1s and 0s that a computer or any other sophisticated machine reads.  When the circuit is open (on), then it a 1.  When the circuit is closed (off), it is a 0.  The computer uses that code to do what you want it to do.  Every task a computer can accomplish is broken down into binary.  I made this page 'cuz I was bored and I like binary.  This page has no real purpose, but I think it is fun to turn text into binary numbers.  The first column is the Alphabetic symbol (the English standard characters).  The second column is the ASCII code (the international number designating a character).  The last column is the binary representation (the 1s and 0s).  (Hit ctrl+f to search this page)

The way you get between binary and the ASCII code is moderately simple.  Reading from left to right, the places go 128,64,32,16,8,4,2,1.  Here are the first couple of numbers:

00000000=0
00000001=1
00000010=2
00000011=3

Then later you get to...

11111101=253
11111110=254
11111111=255

To get from the ASCII code to something people can understand, you go to www.asciitable.com   Then plug in the number and get a letter.

You total geeks out there might notice that counting 00000000 there are 256 different combinations and there are 256 colors in a .bmp image.  This is not a coincidence.

When you put it all together you get this:

01001000
01101001
(That says 'Hi')

01001010
01101111
01101000
01101110
