My First Post

I think the first thing I have to talk about is why the heck did I decide on SignedByte as a blog name.  I've been a Java developer professionally for five years and one piece of trivia I've found is that Java uses signed bytes while every other language and specification has the byte unsigned (since having a negative byte really doesn't make too much sense.)

So what does this mean?  Every time you have to interact with anything non-Java, you have to do a conversion.  Interesting, yet something you probably couldn't care less about!  If you're still curious, check out this article.
