Geohashing

Next Saturday at 4:00pm. XKCD meet-up. Who's doing it? Charles and I are going to try this out. Our location is Rochester, NY (N43 W77). I hope we don't end up in the lake (if we do, we will meet up in the Canandaigua-Corning (N42 W77) graticule, depending on how far out of our way it is). This weekend, I am going up north for family affairs. I might try meeting in Ogdensburg (N44 W75) or Potsdam (N44 W74) if one of my friends up there has a GPS doo-hickey.

I do not have any GPS system and am in need of a guide to find the exact coordinates of the spot. Here is the algorithm for deciphering the meet-up spot (convert the base 16 to base 10):

Not relevant but…
Before the American Version ruins you go on your surfthechannel hotness and watch 'The IT Crowd' if you haven't already. The season one episode entitled 'Calamity Jen' will be the hook that reels you in. Surreal BritCom gold.

Forgive any errors in this my brain is currently clogging up my nose.

I've just returned to civilization, and I watched The IT Crowd (the first few episodes, anyway). It's hilarious!
