The Power of Two

I just noted my Technorati Authority has reached a power or 2, 32; my Rank is 254,861.

As a programmer who prefers binary, in so counts in the powers of two, my Authority is now 5; my Rank almost 18 (2**18 is 262,144).

By the way, 18 can be expressed using one two and two three’s, or using one three and two two’s:

3 * 2 * 3
3**2 * 2 (3**2 is 3 to the power 2, or 9)

But to me it is the address size of the most beautiful computer instruction set architecture yet created, the PDP10
