For a brief geekout on “What the ‘F’ means” read on…

It has been asked various times “What the F are you doing here?” to which we answer, “Having a F’ing good time”

But the main question is, what is up with our numbering scheme, so here is the lowdown:

TLP 6pks are numbered in hexadecimal, a number system of base-16. Most programmers know this, and if you have ever had the pleasure of writing your own webpage you may have come across the color codes in the format of something like “FFFFFF” for White and “000000” for black. Well these are the hexadecimal representation of the color codes for Red Green Blue (RGB). In simplest form, and relating this to a decimal number system (base 10) of which we are all familiar, the FF represents the number 255 so to make a color we “blend” a level of Red, Green and Blue for a range of 0-255.

So for our purposes the F episode represents the number 15, however this is actually the 16th episode since we count starting with 0. Confused? Sometimes so are we. But its different, and works, and perhaps has enriched your life with a tidbit of knowledge.

Also, since we use 3 digits for numbers it means that 6pk-FFF will be our 4096th 6pk. Perhaps the next project will be counted in duodecimal or Radians! Everybody loves π!
