I was watching my local educational access channel this morning while walking on my treadmill. I thump pretty hard when I walk so I turned the TV up. That’s when I really started thinking about the volume control feedback. Why the hell does the volume go from 0 to 63? As a computer-savvy person I can sort of understand it, but come on now, 0 to 63? One of our televisions goes from 0 to 50. Ok, 50 is a ‘round’ number (at least to us who count using base-10). I don’t like 0 to 50 and would personally prefer 0 to 100 (still takes one byte of storage if that’s the problem) because then I might translate that to a percentage. But, ick. Is this worse than a stereo that goes to 11?
