It’s a fairly hot number – decimalists may prefer 13256278887989457651018865901401704640

Actually it’s really old news, but I’ve not had a takedown notice for a while… Of course, if I do get a takedown notice similar to the ones that have been issued, then it’ll contain the URL of this page, which incidentally is http://pcbo.dcs.aber.ac.uk/blog/2007/05/22/09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0/
and that of course, has the number in it, so I can reasonably post about it as it’s the title of a web page that was taken down.

The genie has been out of the bottle for a while now. When will these people realise that we want to be able to use things that we pay for in ways that they haven’t thought of yet. We don’t like DRM, because it stops us from using Macs and Linux boxes, not to mention my old Amigas. Their bully boy tactics just irritate the savvy punters, and are they not usually the early adopters – the ones that pay the premiums to prove the new tech before the prices come down to consumer level?

There’s some rather nice designs for shirts with it on at Cafe Press

And don’t forget to get your very own number at Freedom to tinker
