Makes sense.....but if it goes

.....,4096, 2048, 1024, 512, 256, 128, 64, 32, 16, 1

it could get ugly quick.....I thought there was a shareware program out
there somewhere
that would let my brain cpu cycles not get so taxed.

no need to get fancy. Assume that you could only do 4 bit
and you had to calculate x37 - x24. Subtract the first 4 bits:
3 - 2 = 1, then the last 4 bits: 7 - 4 = 3, the result is then
1 * 16 + 3 = 19.
With 64 bits, you could do the two 32-bit halves (as I did the 4
bits above). Then result = (1st 32-bit diff) * 4Gig + (2nd 32-bit
diff).
