Honestly, ~10 digits in the 0x40 range and it is no surprise the result is arround 666! It is a funny joke - nothing more. Remember: if you look for patterns you will find patterns.

Speaking of numbers and numerology, did you know that
1.1111.111 * 1.1111.111 = 1234567654321

also did you know that
"2B or not 2B that is the FF"

:grin:

"2B or not 2B that is the FF"

It seems to me that X or not X = FF - this is just boolean logic :grin:

Any ideas about very strange constant used in some formulas - number 108?
