It’s hard for me to believe that I’ve been publishing these mostly-weekly lessons for almost a month and a half. It’s been really fun. I hope that those of you reading them have been enjoying reading (and hopefully learning from) them as I have in writing them. This one covers two major topics: memory management and binary math, nothing terribly exciting, but really useful and necessary nonetheless. Learn to Program With Haiku, Lesson 7.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/darkwyrm/2010-02-27_lesson_7_losing_my_memory/
I’ve been going through your guide and it has been really helpful.
You made a typo on page 6 of Lesson 7 and wrote the Decimal equivalent of 10100000 as 150 instead of 160.
Thank you so much for this.
I’ve been converting the lessons to asciidoc format in a git repository to make it easier to keep them up to date (and under a less restrictive license which will allow translations, etc, with the agreement of the original author).
So you can submit a pull request here to fix this error: https://github.com/pulkomandy/programming-with-haiku
I’ll update the website to point to this version of the lessons when we’re done converting them all.
might as well make that change now as http://darkwyrm.beemulated.net is no longer on-line.

Looks like Jon is working on this these days… https://anselus.org/ (secured email alternative) which is linked to from his Darkwrym github page.
