182 138 in base 10...

although... i think it'd be more appropriate to divide by 2 (take off the last 0). 91 69.

91 69 means [E
182 138 means &#9570;è
(ASCII)

Either way, it doesn't really come out with anything meaningful in ASCII...

who says it's supposed to be ascii? 91 69 is quite meaningfull if you ask some people (at least one of the two numbers there).

LMAO!

But to keep us from going in THAT direction...
10110110 OR 10001010 = 10111110 = 190d.
10110110 AND 10001010 = 10000010 = 130d.
Divide them by 10 and they're both PRIME. It MEANS something!

I thought the two binary numbers were going to have some significance. The first thing I did before voting was convert them to decimal and think about it for a while.

You can divide ANY number by SOMETHING and make it prime...except zero...

Yeah.... but both factored out to be 2*5*prime :) That has to count for something! Or... maybe not.

Sorry for my stupidity, but how are they significant to some people?

Ok, let's try this:

Forget 91. Just look at 69.
If you don't know what it means, just go ask your mommy...

When people type in binary, is it just ASCII converted to binary?

Yeah, but some of us are nerdy enough to convert it ourselves. It's very easy to make the conversion. You just need to remember the numbers some important characters in the ASCII chart. The character map helps a lot with that.

Yeah, it's easy to make one for you calc (or computer, for that matter), but the sets of characters are slightly different. :-P

If you weren't here for the past two years or more, a lot of this won't make sense.

I have been here since 2001 without an account and since, I think, 2002 with one but I don't remember.

I know all the references, but I was wondering why one of the options isn't "On-topic posting" if you know what I mean. I was wondering why this is here because it doesn't appear to have anything to do with calculators.

Oh, I see. Well, it's just for fun... to celebrate fun and random memories from the past. It's different because it's the 200th survey. Having a completely random survey every time serveyId%100==0 isn't so bad, is it? :)

Neither have I... but that's because I don't watch PBS! Ha ha ha ha!!! But I think I have heard it on other "Network Television" channels. Not a big deal, anyway. Not like anybody would complain about that... Besides, he's a moderator. He can do what he wants! :-D
