binary numbers are represented by a string of ones and zeros

i mentioned binary indeces, that does not mean the numbers following were in binary

Posted:ok, the idea behind high leet was that actual moderators could still read leet as it was relatively visually phonetic i.e. SPEAK to 5P3@K reads pretty easily if you know the language...

high leet is still visually representing the letters, but unless you are really committed to being fluent, it is impossible to read at any normal rate.

The idea is simple. using only one line of typographic symbols, it is difficult to write every character without using some char's to represent themselves... i.e. f or p. it would be trivial to create such characters with only typesetting symbols if the typer utilized two lines of leet for one line of text, i.e.

p becomes

| )
|

and f becomes
|"
|"

or even

|""
|"

however, because of some bbs removal of whitespace formatting, and the lack of a universal font, the result for the word speak might be:

|"" | ) |= /\ | /
_| | |_ /--\ | \

or

|""|)|=/\|/
_|||_/--\|\

which is pretty much unreadable

therefor a condensed form was created, whereby each letter is a single line consisting of the top portion of the letter next to it's bottom portion and each letter is seperated by a single space, words are seperated by double space or more and the mess is utterly unreadable.

|""|)|=/\|/
_|||_/--\|\

becomes

|""_| |)| |=|_ /\/--\ |/|\

which is more unreadable at first, but once you're used to it, you can type and read relatively quickly.

Posted:well, pi in binary is a simple conversion from pi in decimal, so i'm certain people have written pi to many decimal places in binary, however, no one has "calculated" pi, as it is not rational, so you can only ever approximate it.
