Just read “101 Things You Didn’t Know About Binary”. Much shorter than I expected. And they were right about all 5.

I’m attending my first class in binary, “Binary 101”, which means I’ve missed the first four lessons.

My friend asked if I’m going to take Binary 101 my first semester
I told him I hadn’t taken the first 4 yet.
Do they teach hexadecimal 101?

I just found out that I failed my Binary 101 exam.
I had no idea it was a Level 5 course.
