The real name of Microsoft founder Bill Gates is William Henry Gates III. Nowadays he is known as Bill Gates (III).
By converting the letters of his current name to the ASCII-values and adding his (III), you get the following:
Ok, so that’s a little creepy… but wait, there’s more!
Take M S – D O S 6 . 3 1 and do the same thing:
77+83+45+68+79+83+32+54+46+50+49 = 666
and one more for my ASCII loving readers… take W I N D O W S 9 5 and convert it to ASCII:
87+73+78+68+79+87+83+57+53+1 = 666
So after this little exercise, do you feel Microsoft is evil? Apparently in ASCII values they are :)
Anyone care to try this with Microsoft Vista?
Please note, this post was done in fun and shouldn’t be tried unless you’re a trained ASCII professional and have an ASCII Exorcist on hand to throw around some holy HTML to save your site and/or content if something evil should happen.
