That you can use base-8 and base-16 numbers in some of the numerical fields of CB? I works on the (get more) BA popup.. can you find others?

044 will buy 36 BA
0xA will buy 10 BA

heh, a fellow back on CB1 once used octal numbers to get himself a lot of cash, IIRC. "octo" someone or other? Can't remember all the details.

Looks like while they still work, at least they represent the right values now?

oh yeah, I remember that... he accidentally put a 0 at the front or something... and then proceeded to do it a lot more when he found out what happened.
