Happy Birthday, Marga!

December 30, 2008

Marga turns 20-years-old hexadecimal, anyway. To a computer geek, it's a nice round number. 100000 in binary or 25. 0x20 (hexadecimal notation) is the ASCII code for a space (" ") character. That's why you see all those %20's in web page urls sometimes. Those are spaces. The folks over at have a pretty good explanation.

Enjoy your hexadecimal twenties, love. You've got sixteen more years before your hexthirties. Don't you agree that women's ages should always be represented in hex? Marga

This photo appeared on my camera over Christmas. I suspect the photographer was my sister-in-law, Belén.
