That is so funny @Nash .  I wonder how many people know their powers of 2.

A model citizen
Dream team strikes again. Congrats guys! 🙂
Kind of a big deal

Way to go guys !

Kind of a big deal

@PhilipDAth When I was younger, I very deliberately memorized up to 2^16 (65536). The other night when casting on a new knitting project, I was alternating between decimal, binary, and hexie to count stitches just to make sure my numbers were right. "Ateen, Bteen, Cteen..."

Kind of a big deal

Your new project is to memorise the first 10 or so digits of pi.  🙂

Kind of a big deal

Massive congrats to @dsekely_brs and @nealgs ! Great job!


@Nash, it surprises me that this is your first. I've aways seen nothing but stellar content from you! 


@PhilipDAth @BrechtSchamp Any month you two are active here is a month questions are getting answered! Another crazy effort!

Kind of a big deal

Wow congrats all! I love how close all of our scores are! Well, except for @PhilipDAth of course who's always showing us the way.


I'm with @jdsilva being surprised that this is your first motm @Nash .


Great job @nealgs and @dsekely_brs . Well deserved!

Kind of a big deal

Kind of a big deal

Congrats all.

Kind of a big deal

Thank you for the swag.



Kind of a big deal

@PhilipDAth  I thought that pin board was some form of fancy baking to begin with. You are missing the wireless WAN badge as well 😁

Kind of a big deal

Isn't that it in the bottom right hand corner?


Kind of a big deal

Yeesh, and I thought me having two cloud boards was fancy. Phillip has a storm brewing.


Please make sure you've configured broadcast storm protections and be prepared to take shelter.
