ShankRabbit didn't want to call me out on my post (he's a smart one, that husband of mine), so I'll do it myself.

For those who would like to know the real way to write "feet" in computer-speak...here is a conversation to read:
Shankrabbit: well, you weren't "wrong" per say
as far as how humans interpret numbers
you were right
but if i fed that to a computer... it'd take a sh!t
well, it'd give you something you weren't expecting
Me: lol
computer poops...rad!
Shankrabbit: computers don't process numbers "base 10"
they do it "base 16"
or, as you know it, Hex
Shankrabbit: so, if you'd want a computer to understand it
it'd be
01000010 01000001 01000001 01001010
66 65 65 74
or base 10
102 101 101 116
you did the binary representation of the base 10

Twitter me this...

I have a few things I wanted to write about today, but that was eclipsed by what I just read on Twitter:

Twitter is "stressing out a bit right now?"

I'm sorry you're stressed out, Twitter. You know what, take a break today - put your 01100110011001010110010101110100* up, grab a cup of tea and relax. I know being a social networking service is one tough job.


* - binary for "feet"...at least I think so.
