Code:
E = 01000101
e = 01100101
2) you can obtain the numeric equivalent of any of the numeric characters by subtracting 0x30 from the ASCII value.

3) Bits five...

film photography

Posted 02-02-2012 at 02:32 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Thought this was neat:

A Whirlwind Tutorial on Creating Really Teensy ELF Executables for Linux

The author uses assembly and ELF-hacking to make a binary as small as possible while still doing something useful (returning a value). Goes step-by-step through each hack.
