Yeah well kinda but there aer 8 bits to a byte and the position of the
one or zero in the 8 bit string is significant, but this has nothing
to do with what alt.binaries is about and if Dolan wnt to know more
than what Tom Sherman has already conveyed, he'll not be gettin' it
from me.

Tom Sherman told me what I wanted to know. He has brains enough not to get
too technical with someone like me who has contempt for technicians like
JimmyMac. Never tell anyone more than he wants to know. We librarians are
good at this too.

You didn't seem to have contempt for the technician (me) when my
skills were required to rid you of a computer virus. I didn't bother
to enlighten you because 1) I felt that you should make an effort to
learn something on your own, and 2) because I assumed that the know
it all already knows it all.

JimmyMac can be very helpful when he wants to be, of that there can be no
doubt. And he is quite right of course about me knowing how to look up
anything. That is something librarians are trained to do. However, I am lazy
(slothful) and am loath to look up anything anymore. Tom Sherman understands
this. JimmyMac doesn't.

Oh, I understand. I just won't contribute to your vice. I wont do
for you what you are unwilling to even consider doing for yourself.
I abhor laziness. It is a repugnant trait, but one that suits you.

You are a busy body stalker. It is why you have wasted your life on nonsense
and trivia - like computers. It would be better if you were more slothful.
Then you might find some time for the truly important things in life - like
contemplating your navel. Apparently you did not learn a thing from your
Jesuit professors at Loyola.

I did not need a Jesuit education to learn that you would be a
complete idiot if you didn't have a few screws missing. Stalker ... I
am merely to you what your are to Tom Sherman. Welcome to your own
self-engendered nightmare.

Why not ask Tom Sherman if you and I are equivalents?

You and I will never be equivalents in any regards, but I comprehend
your meaning. Why bother to ask a rhetorical question? I merely
stated the obvious.
