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:
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 books How Computers Do Math and Bebop 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.
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...
