    Mass multiplied by the speed of light squared multiplied by energy to the power of 10.

    or simply put energy to the power of 11.

    Seems to slightly mirror Einsteins relativity equation e=mc2 (squared), with possibly a bit of screwey street beggar poetic licence. That or he's way too deep for me ATM.

    It is a rough estimate of the ratio of W10 installs to working pcs
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    It means 'Im bonkers', and you cant see my tinfoil hat in that photo.

    It also means , we couldnt be bothered getting a photo of actual Welly beggers, so we just used some stock photo .
    Far too much effort to go outside with a camera now. Or try and get any balance by talking to someone on the other side of the story .

    It's gobble-de-gook.

    Like when Peppa Pig asks her father what he does at work, he says:

    "I take big numbers, transmute them, and calculate their load bearing tangents".

    (I also thought Surfer Joe's signature was gobble-de-gook but surprisingly the Latin translates to "I follow you while you are sleeping". I even tried going to German first, then to English, but got the same result. It's the "hic" that stumps me. I thought it meant "here" but it seems to translate as "follow"??)

    I get the formula doesn't seem to be meaningful, couldn't see the relevance to Microsoft.
    Maybe it's so you stop and ask...

    Makes you wonder why a clever bugger like that is reduced to begging on the street. While he most likely has people bamboozled by science I do suspect that he also does not know the meaning of the formula either.
