yous guys don't know the half of it.
while us americans are used to the non-linear measurements of the standard/english system, and the metric system lends itself to simple mathematical formulas and conversions, try working with computer hardware.
binary is simple, the basis of everything (there are 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don't
but then you get into hexadecimal, or a base 16 number system.
that is you count 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, then A (for 10), B (11), c (12), d (13), e (14), and finally f (15).
so you can end up with numbers like 1A, 3F, or FF.
fyi, 1A = 26 (decimal), or 11010 (binary)
3C = 60 (dec), or 111100 (bin)
FF = 255 (dec), or 11111111 (bin)
so now stop all of the whining, and get back in the kitchen!!!!!
