What's in a name?

The Internet has become an essential medium for communicating with your clients, your market, and even your co-workers. It is a powerful marketing and sales tool, a key channel for entertainment and media distribution, and a new way to socialize and communicate with friends and family.

Base 16 is a numbering system that computers use. It is also called hexadecimal or just hex. It is a convenient way for programmers to represent computer data when they don't want to look at tons of 1's and 0's.

Do you need to know this? No.

You know what you want to do. We know how to make it happen.
