I want to share a system I am still experiencing. It is a variation of Major System made to encode hexadecimal digits, mainly because I work in IT area and I would like to use some technique that could also work more naturally with binary and hexadecimal numbers.
0 = S, SS, C (soft), Ç
1 = T
2 = N
3 = M
4 = R
5 = L
6 = SH, CH, X (in Portuguese X and CH sound as SH /ʃ/ )
7 = G (hard)
8 = V
9 = P
A (10) = J, G (soft)
B (11) = B
C (12) = C (hard), K, Q
D (13) = D
E (14) = Z
F (15) = F, PH
So I started with a 2-digit Person list (00-FF), that represents 256 entries.
In my list, some people follow major rules, others use the same letters values above as initials.
After that I included actions and objects (still reviewing some), so basically I got PAO.
Using a Hexadecimal PAO I could (per image):
- just use 00-99 numbers to encode 6 decimal digits;
- encode 6 hexadecimal digits (MD5 hash numbers, for instance);
- do 24 binary digits = 3 bytes (each hex digit is equivalent to 4 bits);
- represent 3 cards; using 1 digit value (1 to D), plus 1 digit suit.
Then I came to one more experiment: adding some Vesture/ Clothing/ Physical Characteristic/ Outfit to the persons and form something like a PVAO (just to name it).
I like the idea because now I can (still testing) encode per image:
- 8 decimal digits;
- 32 bits (IP addresses, for example) or 4 bytes (memorizing a computer file? :glasses: )
- 4 cards. So 13 loci are enough for a deck.
Just to clarify, the “Vesture” part I have used may include some piece of clothing, uniform, head covering, jewelery, or just a very remarkable physical appearance, like white spiked hair for Einstein or Lou Ferrigno big muscles (those are exaggerated to contrast from normal visual appearance).
I hope that may be useful for someone.
