A Dublin based e-learning company called nybble picked up on my 2 year old post about cheating at Leaving Cert Maths (with mobile phones) - We are currently looking into adapting PointsBuilder so that it can be used on a mobile phone and allow students to revise for their Leaving Cert Maths exam while on the move.
The first part of this script puts all 16 combinations of 4-bit nybbles (nybble = half a byte) and their equivalent binary formatted strings (0 = '0000', 14 = '1110') into a temp table called #Nybbles.
So I registered my name (and granted, I did get nybble which actually did surprise me, so maybe there’s something to this whole thing) and dug in.
Fill in the nickname of the person you’d like to check nybble (me!) for example – and it will show you the count from my most recent 30 300 likes.
