A lot of people believe it to be a feature in the telnet client for Windows. Most of the time I have heard it brought up in chat rooms it is regarded as an easter egg for some odd reason.

Yes that is it. Or to make it easier it is the sum of the last two numbers in the sequence.

Gather round for the shortest story ever. I got board one day and decided I like math these people like math, might as well all like math together. That is the story of how I joined, The End

So after I failed math last semester I got kicked into general math. But I already knew the concepts (I got a 94 after paying attention for less than 15 minutes over the course of 4 weeks) so I did what any other board 14 year does... screw around. I knew that if you take the remainder after dividing the Fibonacci numbers you see a pattern. However I noticed a pattern in the length of the patterns, but only when it was divided by certain numbers. The numbers in question would be 2^n for example:
2^1=2 The sequence is 3 numbers: 0,1,1
2^2=4 The sequence is 6 numbers: 0,1,1,2,3,1
2^3=8 The sequence is 12 numbers: 0,1,1,2,3,5,0,5,5,2,7,1
The pattern I noticed is that the length of the sequence is equal to


I have confirmed the same thing with 16 and 32 while in math by writing a program on my calculator. I was unable to go higher due to technical reasons though. I plan on looking into this later and seeing if it does continue.

Yeah, I remember finding that in I think 2008 I'm just glad someone finally has the sense to not call it an easter egg and recognize it as a domain. It's pretty cool though still. I did some looking through the records on the domain and apparently its been up since 16/2/2001.
