Just finished watching +Bill Shillito 's YouTube series Introduction to Higher Mathematics. I watch a lot of maths videos and these are without doubt the best lecture videos I have seen. His enthusiasm makes you want to keep watching and he gets the level exactly right; a substantial technical content but with care not to baffle the viewer who might be encountering these concepts for the first time. I really hope Bill makes more videos in the future.

Imagine a (whole) number being slowly written in binary, digit by digit, right to left (e.g. starting from the least-significant digit). As viewers we don’t know what the complete number will be until the person doing the writing puts the pen down.

How many of these binary digits (0-1) do we have to see written before we know what the rightmost (least significant) digit 0-9 would be if the same number were to be written in decimal?

What’s the reasoning, and what’s the general rule in the case of going from base ‘n’ to base ‘m’?

Fair point, you should disregard the first column. Feature of how the generator worked (or didn't).

Not sure why you'd hate them if they're the finest examples.

I'm not arguing with that part anyway.

Almost every one of our apps has been updated to take advantage of iOS 7. So enjoy.

This used to be a huge and well-organized sports equipment department store. Now it's a huge and chaotic Sports Direct. Not for claustrophobics, but some bargains to be had.

Possibly the classiest surroundings for an HQ that a corporation could have. Other than the Yoda fountain there's not a lot for a tourist to see.

Surprisingly big museum to Walt Disney. Doesn't seem to be endorsed by the Disney company, so only expect to learn about the era in which Walt was alive. The highlight is the original model of Disneyland.
