Often for debugging purposes in a live system I need to display internal states on a seven segment display. This is trivial when I only need to display hex numbers but recently I needed the value represented in decimal because it made more sense for my application. I had a need for a hex to dec converter and as I usually do, I google it first, in case it had been done already. Sure enough, someone has, and the solution involves only shifting and adding 3. The method involved was new to me as I hadn't heard of this way of converting hex to dec, but it works, see his blog. Hope I taught some of you something today
