This is a test in more than one way, I’m trying to see if I can create different sorts of tests, have the server grade them and issue results, perhaps [later] even a custom badge to prove you passed. If you are a regular reader of this site, there is a good chance you know a bit of science, electrical engineering, math[s] and therefore; computer science, that lofty endeavor that sounded like a great thing to major in [since you like video games & are good at math] but became questionable after you’d written your 2 millionth line of code a few years later. If you’re like me it was overkill, it made you hate C/C++/Java/Java(something) to the point of changing majors. Fifteen years later though, after an appropriate break from it all; the numbers (ints, bytes, floats, doubles, shorts, longs, unsigned longs, signed longs, real, imaginary, rational,irrational, natural, transcendental*) the abstract data types (list, stack queue..) the procedures (void goFuckYourself(Object
The first test will be OUR first “test of the test” so all the answers will be Integers; for the math guys, lets call this “all the natural numbers less than the largest int allowed by the Java Runtime Environment, which is ~= 65,000. That is, 1 is a valid answer, 1.5 is not (that’s a Rational number or a “float” in computer speak), 4 is valid, 4 is not (IndexOutOfBounds or, 4 < 1). 60,000 is valid, 70,000 is not (70,000>65k)…get it? ok let’s start with a review of our number systems; Base 10 (the one humans developed because we have 8 fingers and two thumbs), Binary, (developed by humans to represent an extremely low voltage as opposed to”slightly more than an extremely low voltage…we also developed it millenia beforehand the answer to an unambiguous yes/no question ie “are you wearing clean underwear right now — you either are or you aren’t, there is no inbetween, it is also the unambigous result of a test — pass/fail, true/false…using numbers it is a Base 2 system; that is all numbers are represented by a 1 or a zero) and Hexadecimal (a Base 16 system developed as shorthand for Binary Numbers, 0 – f, commonly used today to define colors in RGBSpace)

Question 1 of 15
1. Question
Category: BinaryEnter zero in binary
Correct
yep.
Incorrect
ouch! maybe this test isnt for you

Question 2 of 15
2. Question
Category: BinaryConvert two to Binary (hint – use two significant digits)
Correct
“ten” is correct!
Incorrect
no… zero = 0 and 1 = 1; but 2 = ???? (remember this system only counts using 1’s & zeros).
Hint
9 + 1 require us to add 1 significant digit in base 10 represent it, so in binary this is the same as adding 1 to 1 in bin (or 1+1)

Question 3 of 15
3. Question
Category: BinaryA byte is made of how many bits? Answer in Base 10.
Correct
easy.
Incorrect
no, are you a programmer or an IT guy?

Question 4 of 15
4. Question
Category: BinaryConvert six to Binary (use three significant digits)
Correct
Nice!
Incorrect
no, remember if 0=0 and 1=1, then 2 = 11, so 3 = 100, that mean 4 = 101 and 5 is 110, so 6 can only be ???

Question 5 of 15
5. Question
Category: Base 10two to the sixth power = ??
Correct
yep, did you know most modern systems are 64bit?
Incorrect
cmon; you should know this…
Hint
in pseudocode, it would look like power(x,y) where power is a function that returns x to the yth power.
example power(2,3) returns 8. 
Question 6 of 15
6. Question
Category: Base 104! aka “four factorial” or in pseudocode, factorial(4) is?
Correct
all day long.
Incorrect
negative Scotty.
Hint
4*3*?*?=??

Question 7 of 15
7. Question
Category: Base 10how many combinations of rolls are in a game of craps?
Correct
boxcars*3…you got it!
Incorrect
cmon, you didnt roll them bones when you were a kid?

Question 8 of 15
8. Question
Category: Base 108 times 7 is ??
Correct
nice – most people need a calculator to verify this one, you’re not cheating are you?
Incorrect
ouch better grab a times table

Question 9 of 15
9. Question
Category: Base 10You live 60 miles away from me, I’m coming to see you right now, I’ll be driving sixty miles per hour, how many hours will it take for me to arrive?
Correct
yep I’m not really on my way, sorry. I know how bummed you must be
Incorrect
really? did you get past 6th grade?

Question 10 of 15
10. Question
Category: Base 10sans a subscript, we assume that the function log(x) means log_{10}(x); so calculate log(1)
Correct
good one – we have to understand logs if we’re ever going to get off the ground in computer science….
Incorrect
wrong. if you’re going to cheat, at least look up why the answer is what it is
Hint
definition – log_{B} A = X means that B^X = A, log 10 = 1, log 100 = 2

Question 11 of 15
11. Question
Category: HexadecimalWhat comes after 9 in hex?, that is, compute 9+1, convert the answer from base 10 to hex, then type it (lowercase ok….that’s a clue)
Correct
heyheyhey…”a” is aight!
Incorrect
no, hex uses a different standin for “ten”

Question 12 of 15
12. Question
Category: HexadecimalCovert 15 from Base 10 to Hex.
Correct
fyou too buddy! ðŸ˜‰
Incorrect
wrong…may as well look it up dummy.

Question 13 of 15
13. Question
Category: HexadecimalWe just learned that 10 in hex is ‘a’ and the biggest singledigit – number in hex is ‘f’ …so what is 16?
Correct
Nice! ‘f’ is like a 9 in Base 10, or a 1 in Binary, we’ve run out of symbols so we revert to zero and add a significant digit; In Base 10, 9+1=10, in Binary, 1+1=10; therefore in hex, f+1 = 10.
Incorrect
bzzt! wrong.

Question 14 of 15
14. Question
Category: Hexadecimalok, so if 100 is in hex, convert it to decimal.
Correct
look at the brains on Brad.
Incorrect
wrong again.

Question 15 of 15
15. Question
Category: HexadecimalThe previous question eluded to an important number, it comes up in computing quite a bit. Of course, zero being the first symbol, a computer system representing 256 “things” nee “objects” uses the range 0255, this goes for most highlevel languages like Java. In RGBspace, we can represent over 16 million colors in a 256bit schema; where (0,0,0) means “no red, no green, no blue” (or “blackishthe absense of color”) and (255,255,255) means “use max red, max green and max blue” (like actual light, this hextriplet gives a combo of all available colors, which is white[ish]). We need three 2byte hextriplets to represent three sets of 256, so red can be defined 16 squared ways [256] as can the other two, If black is has a hex value of #000000, then what is white?
Correct
that’s a lot of 15’s. correct.
Incorrect
you are thinking way too hard.
Hint
use the hashtag
are you a level 99 empath?

this is a far more legit and adequate evaluation than you will find …weighted or ‘more correct’ answers will be far more obscured.
extremely sensitive empaths will score highly regardless. if my test shows you are at a mid to low level, dont consider that a problem. trust us, this ability is
a gift and a bane. it would be nice to connect with other maxedoutleveled empaths. Especially those who don’t have a book, a program or some voodoo shit
for sale. this site and this test is all about making human connections. I don’t want your $, but I need your attention (even though it drives crazy sometimes, both lackof and overload….) *sigh*

What is the first feeling you experience when walking into a crowded java joint in the early am?

Question 2 of 5
2. Question
consider the closest person to you spatially at this very moment, it could be a roomie, a significant other, a friend, a neighbor, or a neighbor you’ve never met – even a stranger just walking by. How accurately do you think you could tell me what mood they are in if I gave you 3 seconds to answer?

Question 3 of 5
3. Question
You are scheduled to work 9am to 5pm tomorrow. You are already on a shitlist for using up all your sick days and vacay time. Your lover has asked you not to go to work tomorrow. She is in deep physical pain and her lifespan is in question. so is your career if you are not at your desk 1st thing. losing the job threatens to make caring for your lover more difficult (financially) what are you going to do?

Question 5 of 5
5. Question
I can read people; friends, even strangers pretty good. Still a family member, friend, lover or business partner who, I knew for over a decade stabbed me in the back (financially, emotionally, physically…..) and I failed to see it coming until it was too late. I lost bigtime. this has happened at least once in my life.
