that reminds me........4bits=nibble

I actually laughed when I saw nibble in earlier post and through the same thing steve. lol

OK ... I'm old! It just makes sense ... a nibble is half a bite byte ... that's how I learned this stuff!  :wink:

Actually, half a byte is a nibble :)

It's just most bytes are 8 bits now.
