Base ConversionI have extended my Binary/Decimal/Hexadecimal Converter to make a more general Base Conversion Tool (prompted by the 0.999... = 1 conversation running in another thread) "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."

Re: Base ConversionOoh, very fun. I haven't found any bugs in it yet, and it's all very easy to use. I got a bit confused that 0 in Dec goes to Z in Letters, but then I realised that that actually made sense. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20070112 23:01:56
Re: Base ConversionWell Done! You can! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20070113 06:56:09

Re: Base ConversionAwesome, I'll take a look. igloo myrtilles fourmis #6 20070113 14:18:52
Re: Base ConversionHey, my favorite one so far in base26 is 0.04, which is Z.AAAAAAAAAAAA igloo myrtilles fourmis #7 20070113 14:24:25
Re: Base ConversionOne tiny bug, if you type "B.YYYYY" all is fine, but if you hold and repeat the YYY's for a ways, the point YYYYYYYYY part goes to zero, and the B is left at a value of 2, instead of 3. igloo myrtilles fourmis #8 20070113 14:56:59

Re: Base ConversionThanks John, fixed it! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20070113 18:03:03
Re: Base ConversionI can delete/add/change text where it originally says 'A=1, B=2, C=3, ... X=24, Y=25, and Z=0' in green underneath the two conversion boxes. #11 20070113 18:24:55
Re: Base ConversionLOL! That is something I completely overlooked ... will protect it from editing. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20070118 19:10:57
Re: Base ConversionIn case you missed by post about the repeating Y problem. igloo myrtilles fourmis #13 20070118 21:22:21
Re: Base ConversionEeek ... thanks for that. I will try to discover why. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #14 20070119 10:20:36
Re: Base ConversionOK, I posted a new version, that handles fractional components rounding to 1. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #15 20100124 14:04:04
Re: Base ConversionI was just teaching my Mom about counting in base3, base9, base15, and base10 with this: igloo myrtilles fourmis #16 20100124 14:10:05
