you're missing 3 bits ! Assuming you want to add 3 trailing 0's this would
yield:

	Hex: 80088008
	Quad: 128.8.128.8

which is a palindrome alright, but not the same address Stepehn mentioned.

Bin: 00010000000000010001000000000001


Not a palindrome :-(

Because it does not matter whether it's network byte order or not?
