Roll my own ASCII to binary conversion and put quote size back to 1024
sscanf() with "%2x" requires an unsigned int * and writes sizeof(int) to the pointer. I made my own conversion because we were writing NULLs to neighbor strings since we were passing characters to sscanf() and the remaining three bytes were 00. I feel there must be a library function to do this two character ASCII to byte conversion though. I forgot that the quote would be written in ASCII so I have to double quote's size.
