Look, I'm not a person who rushes to judgement, but if your username contains "1488" I'm just going to drop the banhammer now and save us all some time.
is that another one of those cabbalistically-derived nazi numbers? i should dig up that Perl code that takes any number and demonstrates, through some ridiculous mathematical gematria, that it's somehow connected to "666".
> 88 is supposed to be gematria of HH
i once worked with someone who was into that sort of thing, despite not knowing what a positional number system was, or what it meant. it struck me as mathematics for the innumerate, and seems to me to be one of the paths to the Qanon loony bin.
@mike Fuck. Is that happening?
@TechnicalKO only once so far, not a trend yet.
@Rigby_Koyaanisqatsi just search for it, but I suggest doing so in a private session so you don't end up with some algorithm using it to inform recommendations for you.
@mike Oh right, for fucks sake, yeah, good on ya matey for doing that
@mike But Mike, maybe they're just really into James IV of Scotland ?
@mike first thing that pops to my head is always rs232 and the old 1488/1489 transciever chips!
@ajft oooh that reminds me, my serial port card for the PC arrived! I should install that.
@kemonine literal Nazi shit.
@mike “But they might be a nice person and censorship and” aww, I can’t do it anymore. Yeah, let’s ban those dipshits.
@mike oh gosh looks like I missed something... what’s the significance of 1488?
