Can you count in binary on your fingers?

skington said to me (when I was ranting about User Friendly), "The Gods of the Internet are trying to tell you that User Friendly is a tired, talentless channelling of Slashdot Anonymous Cowards and that your life would be better without it. I mean, name a single decent userfriendly comic in the past year."

I couldn't, but I knew it had happened. And since drmellow has taught me to play "The Finger Game", Today's User Friendly made me laugh. And that was worth it.

It doesn't hurt that I need to be at work by 10 this morning, for the Pharmacy/IT meeting. Now I have a good one to share with Walt...

They certainly do need to hire him. Three weeks ago they started a project where they decided to kill many many fixed IP addresses...some of which Pharmacy was using. They didn't tell anyone that they were doing this (it was supposed to be an 'invisible upgrade' project) and most of the things that were broken are still broken. Including the upgrades, which did not function as planned.

As for the mind whammy, I leave that up to you Jedi. I personally go for my speciality, mind control via chemical means. I could work on them that way, but it might be noticed...

Heh. I've always counted binary starting on my index finger, and the gag doesn't work then. I guess it's more correct to count starting with your pinky.

Or Thumb.

Plus, if you're starting with your thumb, 5 is much more common (at least, where I grew up it was).

Of course, I'm one of those weirdo's who can count to 31 on each hand....
