16 bits ...even I get it Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

(2 to the 16th) -1
If you multiply 2 by itself 16 times, you get 65536 .... if you number each one starting from 0, then they would be 0 .... 65535.

Represents a -1 in 2's complement form ...Usually a sign of an uninitialized variable ...

No, not a member of anything organized.

That 16 bits is like this:

0101 1111 0011 1111

The left most 0, (it could be a one) gives a net value of 0 or 1 (2^0).
The second bit has a net value of 0 or 2 (2^1), the third bit 0 or 2^2 = 4.
Finally the last bit is 2^15 (32,768) so if there are all toggled high (1's)
you add those individual totals together.

Here's a program.

X=0
for J=0 to 15
X=X+(2^J)
endfor
?X

65,535

I don't know why the HML tossed that, but any geek recognizes that as a 2 ^ <some bit/byte multiple)

Is this a serious question? If so, it should be posted under Forum-Related Questions.

If this is not a serious question, it should be posted in the Off-Topic Forum.

Which is it?

Whichever it is, this is not about H1s or HMMWVs.

Which clearly proves that when he gets one more message, his inbox will then be "empty".
