0x202FF

Post by Tank Program »

We now have 0x202FF posts on the forums. Just before that we had 131838 posts. Was just checking and the numbers were symmetric, hurrah!

No such symmetry in total topics. :(

Why did we not celebrate the zeroth post? Zero is perfectly round in any base. You can use the empty string to represent it, by omitting the extraneous leading digit. In some senses it's even like infinity. How did we miss that opportunity?

But that only works in base 10, 100, 10000, and more unusual ones like ∛10000≈21.54! #RuiningYourDayWithMath
