# Exploring Binary

Here's a website and blog that ponders all things of a binary nature...

I just received an email from Rick Regan who says:

Hi Max, I recently started a blog where I talk about all things binary:

www.exploringbinary.com

So far most of the articles are related to binary numbers, but I plan to expand my horizons over time (binary logic, etc.) I've read your booksHow Computers Do MathandBebop to the Boolean Boogie, so I thought you might find it interesting...

I certainly do find it interesting (I didn't realize any one had actually read my books [grin]). But all joking aside, I bounced over to Rick's website and found it to be very interesting indeed. In addition to his blog, there are featured articles, such as:

- Ten ways to check if an integer is a power of two in C; "x & (x " 1)" is only one way!
- Print precision of Dyadic Fractions varies by language.
- ...etc.

Darn... now I have to go and remind myself as to exactly what *is* a "Dyadic Fraction"!

I think it's safe to say that this is a site I will be visiting on a regular basis...
