[OFF-TOPIC] It is true that is impossible write in binary code, the lowest level of programming that you can write is in hex code?

Just to muddy the water...

_Most_ parts of most computers operate in binary.  Portions of some
parts (e.g. some NAND flash) use ternary, quaternary, or octal.  IIRC,
four-state transistor cells are pretty common at the moment, but some
vendor(s) are working with 8-state cells.
