# Looking at my phone i found a memo , does the date and time mean anything to you ?

Asked by sandystrachan (4397) May 22nd, 2009

To start off , i must of wrote this memo as its my phone but for the life of me i cant remember what it is for it was wrote on the 7th May 09 at 6:55am “Nov 2010*8310 13:08 ” i think the (*) may be a space . Do you know of anything that could be happening on that date that made me mark it ?

Boy, can’t help you here but I feel for you. I’m always writing notes to myself using all kinds of little shorthand, and then later down the road I have no idea what the notes mean, and I wrote them!

I first thought the “8310” might be a word, that you forgot to change it to the letter function…but on my phone, there are no letters for 1 and 0. So I have no clue.

Nor on my phone is 1 and 0 letters i am so confused at what it is for , but if i wrote it it has to mean something if only i knew .

maybe 8310 is \$83.10 and you owe someone it? or…hm. i really don’t know. i’m sorry, good luck figuring it out; try to remember writing it, and then maybe it’ll come to you.

I notice that 8310 and 1308 are the same numerals rearranged.

If the * means multiplication, 2010×8310 = 16 703 100.

Letters of the alphabet: 8 3 10 = h c j and 13 08 = m h

Where were you on Thursday the seventh of May at 6:55 a.m., and what were you doing? Who were you with? Were you reading, working, watching TV, just getting up, riding the bus?

Is this anything like any other note you have ever written to yourself?

Does anyone else play around with your phone?

I just remembered what it is . It’s the serial code/date for a tin of irn-bru i had to complain about .

@sandystrachan Yay! You figured it out! The only other suggestion I had was that you wanted to get a Blackberry Curve 8310 when your current cell phone contract came up for renewal in Nov 2010. But that didn’t seem very likely since the phone would be 3 years old by then and it didn’t explain the 13:08. Glad you figured it out though, that kind of stuff can be maddening.
