LaTeX can already do (arabic) decimal and roman numbering for sections/chapters/pages/enums etc, but for proper geekiness of one's papers/presentations, it should be able to do it in binary digits. This mini-hackweek project is about finding out and documenting how to do that in the easiest way.

The answer is probably in <a href="https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/17705/change-the-base-of-the-numeration/29920#29920">this stackexchange entry</a>

which boils down to zypper -n in texlive-moreenum texlive-scheme-medium

\usepackage{moreenum}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[label=\enumbi­nary*,start=8]
