a picture of 8 bytes: the ASCII characters for ‘computer’
some things they could mean:
- 8 8-bit integers
- 4 unsigned 16-bit integers
- a 64-bit pointer
- 2 IPv4 addresses
- x86 machine code
- 2 32-bit floating point numbers
- 1 64-bit floating point number
- 2 RGBA colours
person: “don’t worry if you don’t understand all this right now! We’ll explain.
note on x86 machine code: this code is nonsense, but search “ascii shellcode” for x86 code which is valid ASCII.
