Well, to the best of my knowledge, all data is stored in binary. All the program would have to do is match the binary sections. Also a fairly new system came out called "hexadecimal" it uses 16 cahraters as opposed to 2 and is stored in sections of 6 as opposed to 8. Also, hexadecimal is great for colors because it matches the color capacity of web sites (web safe colors) or your monitor (16 - 32 bit) However I might be wrong, so dont quote me on that. :)
yes, you are. Hexadecimal isn't a "fairly new system." Both have been around and in use almost as long as each other. Binary is used to store information because of its simple format, a yes/no system of storage so there isn't any confusion. Hexadecimal is mainly used when you check the MAC number on any computer or whatnot. (The MAC number is like an IP address, only its permanently engrained on ROM in your PC, and never changes). Anyway, back onto the subject.
I'm not 18, not that it matters, I'll be 18 in a few months, but in the meantime I can just do things the old fashioned way... ask my girlfriend to pose : )
