Since I learned to snooze my alarm clock while sleeping and I don't even remember doing so after that, I bought a new one. This time it is a radio clock, so it will play until I wake up and walk to it to switch it off. Hopefully this new (for me) technique of waking up will be more effective. The previous clock will be donated to my girlfriend in the near future. This will probably keep the beast happy for a day or two. I'm kidding, of course. :)

I also bought a hands free set for my GSM only to discover that the exact model I bought does not fit my phone. The one that I bought is for siemens 55/62 series and my phone is a siemens ME45. Eti will get this thing as well.

I notice too many strange numbers on cars lately like -
997 which is one of the frequency plans for VDSL.
255 - 28-1.

Some strange labels all around as well -
CEF - damn, am I a geek. Cisco Express Forwarding

I will relocate the blog soon. Tomorrow seems like a good day for this task.

It is in fact extremenly hard to find a small number, which does not have any special meaning.

Speaking of strange numbers... There's a video renting store where I've signed up as customer #3128 - and I signed up just after a bad day at work, trying to beat a Squid proxy server (http://www.squidproxy.org/ for those fortunate enough never to have dealt with one) into shape!

Until a couple of months ago, there was a Trabbie parked (like, permanently parked) close to home, which had a licence plate saying '6502'...

Sometimes, when people see me laugh maniacally for apparently no reason at all, and when I later explain the significance of some particular number (or sequence of letters, as the case may be), and they just stare at me, I remember the story of Ramanujan's 1729 taxicab - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardy-Ramanujan_number :)

Oh, and... welcome to extelligence.ringlet.net :) (and sorry for taking so long to sort out the initial database permissions problem)
