Hexadecimal word games. Not fail = foresee!

If you write “fail” as 0x0FA11, not fail becomes 0xF05EE..or “foresee!”

It’s fun to try and write words in hex, like “deadbeef” of “cafebabe.” If we allow ourselves certain 1337 notations for letters, we can write even more words as Hexadecimal integers like “5ca1ab1e.” Pretty cool!

What is not scalable? Well that’s computable … not 0x5ca1ab1e is 0xa35e54e1. This isn’t a word.

But as I demonstrated above, much fun can be had by taking binary operations on these integers. Not fail is foresee. Can you find any others?
