    "when starting a thread add a text summary" is my guess. In other words, in addition to the link, tell the reader a little about the content of the link.

    I figured out how to count to 35 using 10 fingers using base 6. I also have been working on a base 6 multiplication table and this:
    40523 = e4c5b2a3

    Those of us who were doing stuff on computers when CDC was around are veeeeery familiar with base six. Not philosophy, reality.

    It seems the most common name for base 6 is senary:

    It was good to see the finger counting was like how I thought...

    The fractions/decimals are good.
