Thanks for a light-hearted response - much the same vein, I suspect,
that the original authors defined their 'magic number'.
For those not wanting to look up the ascii table:
6a = j
69 = i
6d = m
He's a lower case kinda guy :-)
I'm bilingual (Octal & Hex), but much prefer my programs to print in
ASCII. I'm out of practice at reading Hex dumps directly...
That's why God invented software - to do our work for us.
