don't need to translate hex to decimal, just remember the closer to f it is, the closer to 255 it is. So if it is 88 it is close to 125.

when I'm listening to these guests I always think these apps should have a home page for dummies, where they explain what this is about and who is their target group. I listen for an hour and have no clue what they are talking about.

I must say your grammar has no issues. If we'd take out "y'know", "I mean", "yeah", "it's like" from shoptalkshow, their episode would be 75% shorter. 😁
