Here's our conversation:
Kathleen: Can you write in binary?
Sean: 01111001 01100101 01110011 00100001 (yes!)
Kathleen: Does that mean yes? You are so cool!
Sean: That's a deinite yes, but hex is way more efficient than binary! 79 65 73 21
Kathleen (after consulting Ryan to find out what "hex" was): I can see that! Is that because hex is base 16?
Sean: Yes it's 1000 times better (1000 in binary of course)
Kathleen: You're a genius! I'm so excited to be your cousin!
Sean: Is it official then? Did you set the date?!
Kathleen: I wish! I'll be sure to tell you when it's official! Hopefully sometime next year.
