A thought

Does "the $$600.000.000 man" mean he's only worth 600 dollars? (In the U.S. a period in a number means a decimal point.)

Re: A thought

I know in Germany the comma is the decimal. 

Anyway, in Trigun he's worth $$60 000 000 000, said "Sixty Billion Double Dollars"

Re: A thought

Which means that guy is only worth a lowly 1/100th of Vash's worth.

Re: A thought

In Europe, a period in a number means a thousand separator, and a comma is a decimal point.
the $$600.000.000 man means 'the 600 million double dollar man'. Apparently he left some zeros out.

Re: A thought

I'm probably worth less than $600. My parents don't want me to have too much money, because they're afraid I might spend it on food.

Re: A thought

Done, you might have to re-log on though.  If the board stops you from editing your profile, I might have to change the periods to commas (it thinks "the $$60.000.000.000 man" is an IP address for some reason and I had to use phpmyadmin to set that username)

Re: A thought

He could just use spaces.  That works too.

Re: A thought

I think it's because I changed his name with phpmyadmin instead of the forum's renamer.  Punbb won't allow that name because it looks too much like an IP address.

Re: A thought

Some odd punbb quirk I guess.  Maybe I should hack the scripts to allow those kind of names.

Re: A thought

I still think putting spaces instead of decimals would work just as well.
