i just need an A4 page of binary code, and it would be ideal if it were the binary code for a FATAL ERROR ... if that is even slightly possible! its for an art project, and thought someone here might be able to help. cheers

Well you could just write random 0s and 1s. I doubt that there is anyone who will be able to tell that the 0s and 1s aren't from an actual error message.

convert it urself
all u got ta do is this
divide by 2 to give an integer and a remainder
divide interger by 2 to give another integer and another remainder
continue on till integer = 0

look at example i will turn no. 41 into binary

41/2 = 20.5 therefore 20 = integer and .5 = remainder 1
20/2 = 10 therefore 10 = integer and 0 = remainder 0
10/2 =5 0 remainder 0
5/2 = 2.5 2 =integer nd .5 = reamainder 1
2/2 = 1 0 remainder 0
1/2 =.5 0 interger 0 remainder 0


label the non zero remainders as 1 and read upwards

100100 = 41 in binary

ps an integer: basically is a whole number positive or negative

hmmm, i might try that dev, cheers ... alternatively i'll just what a jpg image off of google. i was just seeing if anyone had anything more accurate to tell me about, but no worries. thanks for all lookin anyway

soz sam.didnt mean to go ranting off.
if u understand it .u deserve a pat on the back.

much appreciated mate ... im doing thermodynamics lectures at uni at the moment, so if you think that was complicated, you should see some of the thermodynamics stuff!!

there is a much easier method... open up windows calculator, type in the number, then hit F8 to change to binary mode.

However, the best method to get a bunch of 1s and 0s would be to write a simple program to use the random number generator and display a 0 for any value from 0 to .5, and a 1 for any value from .5 to 1

if you want authentic BSOD generation code, I suppose I could get that... but it would take some annoying coding work and for all intents and purposes random bits is just as useful.
