    I know it seems stupid but I was wondering this earlier. When you tell smeone face to face, actually speak what your resolution is ... how do you say it?

    eg. one thousand and twenty four by seven hundred and sixty eight

    or do you say it in numbers?

    one oh two four, seven six, eight.

    I personally say it in the latter way, so for me it would be:

    one two eight oh, by one oh two four.

    What about the rest of you?

    That's strange, I was thinking this the other day for some strange, nerdy reason :confused: .

    I would say 'one two eight O by one O two four', if the situation ever arose. :p
