Because of the problems of economy, I or almost all of kanji users

field of computing science or industry in Japan, the 16 digits
from 0 to F have been used for the hexadecimal system.

there are many conventions for using kanji in curious demands,
made day by day. But the new rules also exhaust brains of
many bodies. I wonder how I waste your ability to live.
