The initials of my full name are: KDT

Taking the progamming convention of base-16 ... where 10=A, 11=B, 12=C ... thru 15=F ...

... and expanding that to base-36 numbers, where 16=G ... thru 35=Z ...

Then, KDT becomes a number ... and when that number is translated back into base-10, the all-numerical-digit result is 26,417 ...

And so, KDT = 26,417 ... and so, kdt26417 symbolizes my name in numbers ... and harks back to the old 8.3 filenames we use/d for backward compatibility.

While being neither programmer nor mathematician, I'm always interested in numbers and computers. And that's the whole story of my online name.
