Last minute speed entry. I'll see how I can do in a time crunch. With more time I would have cleaned up the edges of the foam numbers a bit.

Pre-challenge notes:
Didn't get everything as perfectly lined up as I needed, but I think my lighting is improving, I got what I was after in that area. Maybe good for a low 5.

Post-challenge notes:
Yesssss! An infrequent 6 for me, and by just a hair it made my profile page. It was hovering so close above that magic 6 that it could have gone either way at rollover. As some people mentioned in their comments, it could have benefited from some fill light in the front. Not shabby for a last minute entry.

Nicely executed, although I would have made the background random 1s and 0s; alternating them doesn't look like any binary I know.

Good humor in this one, and not a bad shot. Nice job for a hurried entry.

Binary... sweet! (try adding a bit of fill light on the front of the blue '1' and red '0')

I like this idea, I'm one of those who don't! The shadow is just a wee bit dark on the blue 1.

Ah, this reminds me of a Toothpaste For Dinner comic which said -

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who know binary, and those who have friends.

I like it! :).

haha...good one. I don't really understand it all that much, but at least I get the joke right!

I really like this. The only thing I would say is it might be better if there was more fore lighting on the blue and red numbers. Other than that I think this is great.
