I went around trying to figure out if 10011101 was an Intel x86 
instruction, like reset, but could not turn anything up.

What does it mean?  I'm curious.  A signed or unsigned integer seems
rather drab, unless i don't know how it's used...

   We were thinking of going with picket signs that read "10011101" but we decided
   that no one would get it.  :)
