YAY, another digit to my age today. Let's hope I get to add another one before my candle burns out. Do ya think two more digits would be too much to ask for?

(If you're confused, I'm 0x20 yrs old -- no longer a hexateenager!)

Yes, you're confused. Last year I was 0x1F, i.e. "effteen", years old.
Maybe the proper term would be eff-hex.


Thanks Snaggy!

I think tekniklr was referring to the topic title "Woo hoo, I'm 100000!" which would indicate that you were 32 years old due to one too many zeroes.

0x1F = (16^1)*1 + (16^0)*15
= (16*1) + (1*15)
= 16 + 15
= 31

So you are 32 now, and haven't been a teeneager (decateenager) for 14 years, like I originally said

100000 is 32 in binary ((2^5)*1) and 0x20 is 32 in hex ((16^1)*2). I missed the hexateenager part, so your originaly post didn't make much sense. But it doesn't really matter anyway as long as you had a happy birthday!!
