Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed it! I didn't know that, thank you! The code in the article is not really capable of handling, for example, the IIXX case, even though it probably wouldn't take much to cover that, too. It's something I really like about our number system today: There's only ever one way to write a number (that is, if you don't count mathematical expressions or complex numbers...)

(Sorry for the late reply)
