The significance of the numerical value was not immediately apparent to me, but I did eventually figure it out.

I like it!

August 15 is Assumption Day (Feast of the Assumption), celebrated by much of Christendom. The date was officially set for the Catholic Church by Pope Pius XII in 1950.

Happy Birthday Server ! (following all the links from there recursively, I think it is 8 years by now, if you are still alive and your brains and guts were not replaced meantime ; for us it is 55*, and we are still going strong...)

And Happy Birthday Helium too...


(edit 2: went back the links chain, could not stop myself - it is actually 9 years... sorry Server... hihi)
(*edit 3: in Thai, 5 is "haa", so you will often see in their posts, papers, messenger conversations, etc, quite frequently the "555" messages - arbitrarily number of fives from 2 to more, according with how hard the person is laughing, but usually 3 or 4; we also reply frequently with "555" to our local colleagues, when it is something to laugh about in conversation; Thais use this a lot, like in telephone numbers, or even street banners advertising, or places' names, you can google "thai 555" or so; therefore, I can say "I am at the haha age"... )

What the product of the first 20 integers means in the context of this thread is not obvious to me either.

20 year anniversary, or were you being sarcastic?



Hmm it took almost 3 months until Nov 8th for post #2 on the server? Xyzzy didn't even reply to George welcome post?
