@ChuckV—53 is still young… How old is that is HEX dog years?

EDIT: Just checked—it’s a 3 digit number that is also reversed in Hex. (371 becomes 173)

To self: How does a 53 yr old know what the heck HEX is?

Just ticked the clock back around to 36 years young today, course with my daughter turning two tomorrow she keeps me running around enough to make me feel old.
It was 2 years ago today that brat decided to ruin my b-day by making her mother go into labour at noon and then decided to wait 23.75 hours to actually appear. She’s been keeping me jumping ever since.

I can even “cuss” in HEX…convert 51914 to hex.
