The 0 and O confusion was probably a different debugging episode I had staring at a computer print out. It may have been an O instead of 0 that caused a data exception.

I really wanted to forget about dumps and hex digits, you know
We both have forgotten it. I should have said "In my day, a dump had the numbers 0 thru 9 and the letters A thru F.". Isn't R great, whether there is an E at the front or not?

Yes, R sure is great.

Come to think about it, I still may have one of those IBM ASCI conversion cards around. Why I still keep it? Habit I guess. Like a good luck charm over all these years.

One of my friend's husband is in computers. When we'd get together he and I would carry on the computer talk without even thinking about it. Then my friend would make a comment about all the "geek talk". We weren't trying to be fancy, just talking and forgetting that it was "geek talk"

Just number 2's. .

I had the exact same experience this past weekend. Talking to my friend's husband about graphics cards, ipads vs smartphone vs wifi enabled phone improv device, tech specs, the debut of Starcraft 2 etc. Then we looked at our respective wives, who had been quietly and patiently waiting for the subject to change, the whole time staring blanking at each other thinking "nerds".
