Warriors....

Any idea of the true meaning of the number 777? Maybe based on your guess, your experience?

Please do not answer 'it's the jackpot number'

I am very curious....

Thanks!

    READ ALL
    WRITE ALL
    EXECUTE ALL

    i.e chmod 777

    Its ALSO the highest octal number that can be represented in 9 bits. Out of a 16 bit number that leaves 7 bits, or enough for 2 more digits. And UNIX uses octal to handle security. So 777 means anyone can write, read, or execute the file. NOT a good situation. 7777 means the same thing but ALSO that the person running it can do anything the user and/or group could do.

    I told someone about swift, that it probably used UNIX, which has security like the above, AND that it is nicknamed "the beast", and he FLIPPED!

    If you are seeing this number everywhere it may be a message from your angels.
    According to the book "Angel NUmbers 101" by Doreen Virtue, 777 means...
    'You are definately on the right path in every area of your life. Stay balanced and spiritually awareso that you can continue moving forward on this illuminated path'

      But if you are a system admin, 777 or 666 is a BAD sign! BTW 666 is considered the sign of the devil also!

    And if you're an air-traffic controller it means that you've got some wide-body jets in your airspace...

    They've been arguing the meaning of 666 for possibly millenia! I EVEN heard a theory that said it meant NERO!

    I only know what means number of 666.
    AS Iron Maiden sings "666 the number of the beast. Hell and fire was spawned to be released"

    It's just symbolism with some religious/clut background. If you're like me religion and cult's mean nothing, thus the symbols mean nothing.
