• The word "binary" is another word for 'two digits', so that is the only appropriate description for a two digit code. If it had more digits in it - it would have a different name. The idea is that the switches in code are either on or off (0 or 1).
  • It follows the on / off yes or no principal. It is the logical code society has agreed upon for programming. Imagine it in terms of electrical pulses obeying a go / stop command and the result is what we see before us. I have heard talk of a new computer chip that is being designed that does not adhere to this age old formula of programming where it operates upon a holographic model with many more possibilities of outcomes something akin to how the human mind is wired yet another example of how technology imitates natural design. This site is a projected reference. HM:
  • Bi means 2
  • because computers can only understand 2 things: 0's and 1's. which is known as binary.
  • There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
  • 01000010 01100101 01100011 01100001 01110101 01110011 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100001 01110100 00100111 01110011 00100000 01100001 01101100 01101100 00100000 01111001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01101110 01100101 01100101 01100100 00100001 00100000 00111010 00101001
  • Binary literally means "two digits".
  • Computers are based on the 'byte', which is a group of eight storage spaces, each of which can be in one of two states: 'on' or 'off'. If you represent the number 1 by 'on' and the number 0 by 'off', you have the basis for an arithmetical system. If all eight spaces are switched to 'on', in binary notation that is 11111111, which I believe is the number 255.
  • Because it's binary, not hexidecimal. (By my count, this has to be at least the sixth best answer so far)
