SSB Log Entry 443
After reviewing all the ways you can ASCII encode binary data, I think Crockford's Base 32 is my favorite.
- No special characters
- No padding to get in the way (there is an optional checksum, though)
- URL safe and file system safe (even on case insensitive file systems like FAT16/FAT32)
- Human-centric (reduced risk of typos, easy to say over the phone)
- Easy to implement (I wrote an encoder in one afternoon)
