Actually, yes, a little, but I would love to change it to hex. Hex is much
nicer in my opinion. I think this would be a good change.
Btw, I found another compelling reason for binary strings to use hex and
not octal: HTTP. HTTP uses hex, and it's messy to handle input from the
client in hex and output to the client in octal.
