Features

  • ASCII Conversions
    Convert ASCII strings to and from: binary, hex, integers, and reverse. You may also convert ASCII to: lowercase, titlecase, and uppercase.
  • ASCII Table
    Shows the ASCII table with binary, decimal, hex, and octal equivalent values.
  • Key Codes
    Shows key value assigned to each key pressed on keyboard and their decimal values.
  • Animal Age
    Can determine animal age in human years and your age in animal years (cat, dog, and horse).
  • Depreciation
    Determine straight-line and sum of the years digits depreciation for the following…
    depreciation of year, overall depreciation, value of asset now. 10 years is the max.
    • Shows amount of time a file(s) takes to download using a specific bandwidth service and/or speed from 9600 baud, to T-1, to OC-1 carriers, to the fastest there is called the DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexor).

 

  • Small bandwidth common comparisons
    Units of measurement: bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes.
  • Medium bandwidth common comparisons
    Units of measurement: bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes.
  • Large bandwidth common comparisons
    Units of measurement: bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes.
  • Huge bandwidth common comparisons
    Units of measurement: bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes.
  • You Decide tab for specific speeds.
    Units of measurement: bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes.
    Speed types: bps (bits per sec), Bps (Bytes per sec), Kbps (Kilobits per sec), Mbps (Megabits per sec), Gbps (Gigabits per sec), Tbps (Terabits per sec).
  • PPI To Inches
    Determine the actual physical size of a digital image in inches.
  • File Size
    Determine the file size of a digital image.
  • PPI Needed For Scan
    Determine what PPI to scan an image at so you get the correct halftone when printing.
  • Effective Resolution Calculator (ERC)
    Effective resolution is the image resolution subsequent to scaling. Use this before scaling an image in a page layout program to determine it. If the calculated effective resolution doesn’t meet your standards then either crop image in a photo editing program or rescan image at appropriate resolution and size intended for print.
  • Web Colors
    Convert Hex color values to RGB values and vise-versa, check whether a color is web-safe, and to show the nearest web-safe color.
    • Convert thousands of units of measurement utilizing numbers or fractions.
  • Cricket Chirp Temperature
    Determine the temperature from number of cricket chirps heard. Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin, and Rankine results.
  • dp/HI/RH
    Determine the dew point, heat index, and relative humidity. Celsius and Fahrenheit results.
  • Wind Chill
    Determine Wind Chill Index. Choices are pre-November 2001 and new formula. Fahrenheit only results.
