what i listen to

so mostly i listen to the ign games podcast. i tend to listen to all of them even though i don't have all the platforms. Secondly, I'll listen to indie spinner rack for comics related stuff. I used to listen to all around comics, comic geek speak, fanboy radio, wait wait don't tell me and this week in science. Every once in a while, i still listen to music like my new favorite song.

i forgot to mention the friday podcast of Cort and Fatboy. Mike Russel (movie reviews) , Aaron Duran (comics news) and Dave Walker (b movies) are regular guests + there's a few interviews with Katie Sackhoff. How geek focused is the show? Who else on the air has skits about voltron and talks about how Dave Walker has been named as a skrull by Bendis?

The following is a two color 8x8 pixel image.
each pixel can be represented as a binary number thus:


or as a single number like this:
10000000 01000000 00100000 00010000 00001000 00000100 00000010 00000001

to iterate through all the combinations would simple require to increment the binary number.
That's 64 positions so the number of combinations is 2^64=1.844674407371e+19.

to animate at 60 frames per second = 3.074457345618e+17 sec = 5,124,095,576,030,430 min = 85,401,592,933,840.5 hours= 3,558,399,705,576.68 days = 9,749,042,775.64 years

to display all combinations in one image = 2^32 x 2^32
4,294,967,296 pixels x 4,294,967,296 pixels
@ 72DPI = 59,652,323.55 inches = 4,971,026.96 ft = 941.48 miles
