Endianness mnemotechnic

A long time ago I had a difficult time trying to remember the differences between Big Endian and Little Endian. I came out with this little trick to make it easier to remember: associate Low with 0.

In Big Endian, you store the most significant byte in the smallest address. In Little Endian, you store the least significant byte in the smallest address.
