    I'm not sure about Heisenberg.

    Great question. Thanks. Makes me want to go back and change some code.

    Thanks for the question. I'm glad we don't have the memory prices of that era any more.

    Wow, I've never had to do bitwise operations. I totally interpreted that as a math problem (one to the one hundredth power).

    Thanks for the question!

    I'm just not sure about Heisenberg.

    Thanks for the fun question, Don. I at first thought it was raising numbers to a power (in which case the final answer would be 1,1), until I saw the title of the question and recomputed it properly. That's a neat technique, even if cheap memory prices make it no longer necessary. Thanks for making Friday fun!

    I'm not so sure about your tag line, though. I'm just not sure about somebody who is just not sure about Heisenberg. That's something about which it's difficult to form a definitive opinion. :hehe:

    My other thought for a tagline was "Will Rogers never met Pete Rose."

    Made the same math mistake. I have done several bitwise AND operations but have not seen an XOR used since school, nearly 20 years ago.

    Oh, good. I'm not the only one.
