    Isn’t it funny that this magazine kind of messed up their numbering scheme?

    Numbers starting with “0x” are hexadecimal numbers, so the numbering should be:

    0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04 0x05 0x06 0x07 0x08 0x09 0x0a 0x0b 0x0c 0x0d 0x0e 0x0f 0x010 0x011 ...

    But instead, they chose a base 10 numbering:

    0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04 0x05 0x06 0x07 0x08 0x09 0x10 0x11 ...

    I wouldn’t care if it was some wannabe-hacker hipster tech-magazine, but c'mon, these guys should know and do better!

      Maybe they forgot the decimal flag on, or just threw an extra DAA to make it more human readable?

      Although given the sort of stuff they talk about, I think these guys are on a big budget and therefore have one of those new editing machines with shining Motorolas with their own set of BCD specific instructions..

        First number is the volume?
