  • Interesting story...

    It says a lot about both parties involved, I think:

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

          Wow! That guy has too much time on his hands! But seriously, that's pretty cool.

          I think the reason it took Glen a couple of days to return George's message is the he and his co-workers were laughing hysterically during that time!

                That's exactly what I thought. Boring, yet it was interesting.

                  Ham radio operators. It's a requirement to get a license.

                    Still used in aviation to identify the various radio navigation aids. Pilots don't have to know it, though. They just listen to it and compare it to the dots and dashes printed on their charts.

                        i would say over 99.9% of computers today use binary coding like morses

                        And exactly what makes it any worse than ASCII?

                        Actually i wouldnt be surprised if length of coding would follow freqvensies of english alphabets, and if that would be case it would be more compact than ASCII when message would be english text. But if this is case or not... i let somebody who still remembers morse to answer...

                          Morse is you friend, not watched independence day? its the _only_ form of signalling that can cover (without direct connection) long distance, and be transmitted as sound(beeps), light(torch.ship-ship), electricity(telegraph), vibrations(inmates banging on pipes) and its varient semaphore(flags)

                          Sometimes people amaze me, after all, without morse we may not have even got to rs232 etc
                          Lez, more widely known as flez1966

                            I thought computers used Binary - on and off (base-2). Whereas Morse uses three signals - dot, dash, and off (base-3)... Since when is Morse Code binary?

                            And that international version seems like base-4.

                              There are ambiguities in morse code. I remember a story I read years ago... a quick Google search found:
                              The possibilities for ambiguity in American Morse code led to some confusing and amusing messages, as when a bridge inspector's report was copied as "Found a lion under bridge 16..." (the intended message was "Foundation under bridge 16...").
                              Courtesy of http://www.faradic.net/~gsraven/book...er_review.html (not much else interesting on that site though).
