    Lord of the...CDs?

    Bill Gates and the CD of Power

    Of course, we have to have a Lord of the Rings reference:

    Recently one of my friends, a computer wizard, paid me a visit. I mentioned that I had recently installed Windows on my PC, told him how happy I was with this operating system and showed him the Windows CD. To my astonishment and distress he threw it into my micro-wave oven and turned it on.

    I was upset because the CD had become precious to me, but he said "Do not worry, it is unharmed." After a few minutes he took the CD out, gave it to me and said "Take a close look at it."

    To my surprise the CD was quite cold and it seemed to have become thicker and heavier than before. At first I could not see anything, but on the inner edge of the central hole I saw an inscription, in lines finer than anything I have ever seen before. The inscription shone piercingly bright, and yet remote, as if out of a great depth.

    "I cannot read the fiery letters," I said. "No," he said, "but I can. The letters are Hex, of an ancient mode, but the language is that of Microsoft, which I shall not utter here. But in common English this is what it says"

    "One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them
    One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."

    Cool

    here's a source code for converting binary to decimal, ascci to hex. found in:
    http://www2.ics.hawaii.edu/~wes/ICS212/Notes/BDHA.html

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int a, b, c, d, e;
    void main()
    {
        int i;
        a = 65;
        b = 0x41;
        c = 'A';
        d = 'A'+3;
        printf("a = %d b = %d c = %d\n", a, b, c);
        printf("Ascii %c, decimal %d, hex %02x\n", d, d, d);
        printf("Here is d in binary: ");
        for(i = 7; i>=0; i--) {
            if((1<<i)&d) printf("1");
            else printf("0");
        }
        printf("\n");
    }
    and oh. its a C++ source code.

    I am a hacker, you may stop this individual, but you can\'t stop us all...
    after all, we\'re all alike.
