02:17 skinkitten hey larry can you write a book for young programmers : Letters to a young computer scientist ala http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_of_Mentoring
02:17 skinkitten TimToady: ^^
02:17 skinkitten some genius needs to write that book
02:17 TimToady well, I'm actually no good at mentoring--I just like to encourage people
02:19 skinkitten encouraging letters to a young programmer
02:19 skinkitten :D
02:20 skinkitten ahahhaa thanks for the encouragement the other day!
02:21 TimToady you're very welcome indeed
02:21 skinkitten such an awesome style of communicating/writing/talking

04:47 RRR2 How do you split a number into bytes?
04:50 sorear usually it's done by interpreting the number in either base 256 or 128
04:52 sorear the latter form allows the byte stream to be self-delimiting and makes small numbers more efficient; it is often called "varint" or "BER" and is related to Elias gamma coding
04:53 sorear base 256 is used for very large numbers by several bigint libraries, and for numbers of fixed size by the vast majority of modern byte-oriented CPUs and also in software applications such as the INT2OS function in PKCS#1 for splitting RSA signatures into byte strings
04:56 sorear if you tell me more about your problem, I'll give you some more specific advise
05:03 shortcircuit So, I just published this to GitHub. Looking for feedback... https://github.com/mikemol/msgpass
