1. ## Sentosa Thread XL (40) - furball 31:587 "What gang ? Gang of Furballs ???"

Welcome to season 40 (XL) of STG. (..it ain't eXtra Large.)

It's season 40. And some of you wondering what happen to the "X"s, "V"s and "I"s.
Here an extract from a website which i found,

I - The easiest way to note down a number is to make that many marks - little I's. Thus I means 1, II means 2, III means 3. However, four strokes seemed like too many....

V - So the Romans moved on to the symbol for 5 - V. Placing I in front of the V ó or placing any smaller number in front of any larger number ó indicates subtraction. So IV means 4. After V comes a series of additions - VI means 6, VII means 7, VIII means 8.

X - X means 10. But wait ó what about 9? Same deal. IX means to subtract I from X, leaving 9. Numbers in the teens, twenties and thirties follow the same form as the first set, only with X's indicating the number of tens. So XXXI is 31, and XXIV is 24.

L - L means 50. Based on what you've learned, I bet you can figure out what 40 is. If you guessed XL, you're right = 10 subtracted from 50. And thus 60, 70, and 80 are LX, LXX and LXXX.

Lotsa events coming, the huge ones worth mentioning are AEROSPACE 2006 and IT Show 2006.

Recently an interesting thread has more than 13k worth of viewership in a week. Amazing!!! Last season of STG takes 2 weeks to achived that.
