I guess I just think of how many bits of data per byte the encoding method uses: so, PER FORUM BYTE, we manage to transfer 6 bits of data.... the forum bytes are actually still 8 bit bytes (of course), we just can't use them fully...MrSwiss wrote:Well, technically this isn't correct, since some of the char's used in the Alphabet,leopardpm wrote:we can call our 'standard': FB-Forum ASCII (FBFA), 6-bit encoding for 8 bit data through the forum
are in effect 7 bit coded (induced by the shift, of 35).
The Alphabet: from "#" to "b", all char's in between are valid ... call it: B64SH35 ?!?
but, if you are really attached to the cryptic "B64SH35", then... why not!? lol
