So am I. Very glad! That is just heinous.

In my first job out of school I was programming Allen Bradley PLCs and they used mostly octal to represent values and it was very annoying. Almost every other PLC used hex and eventually AB did too. At least, to the best of my recollection they did. I got out of programming PLCs as soon as I possibly could which was not long after that.

Amusing trivia : I started that job about the same time the IBM PC came out and back then PLCs were called Programmable Controllers or PCs for short. It took a few years to make the full transformation to call them Programmable Logic Controllers since the term PC had become trademarked.
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"
