V

Number 5 and letter V

There are numerous references throughout V for Vendetta (both potentially intentional or unintentional) to the number 5 and letter V, which is itself "5" in Roman numerals:

* When V is shot, he leaves a trail of blood on the wall as he falls; in the shape of a letter V.

* Valerie's letter has 5 pages.

* The title "V for Vendetta" contains 5 syllables.

* The title of each chapter begins with the letter V.

* The character V is seen reading and quoting from Thomas Pynchon's novel, V.

* Beethoven's fifth symphony is used in the book and noted for the prominent use of three short notes and one long, which is the Morse Code identifier for the letter V. This code was used as a call sign by the BBC during World War II, most famously in the sense of V for Victory. [It is worth noting that the telegraph and Morse code were not invented until after Beethoven's death and well after composition of Symphony 5 hence any connection between Beethoven's theme and the letter V is serendipitous but entirely coincidental. Unless the developers of Morse Code liked Beethoven.]

* Evey's name is composed of "E" (the fifth letter of the alphabet), "V" (5 in Roman numerals, and the fifth letter from the end of the alphabet), and "Y" (25th letter of the alphabet, or 5 squared). The woman who dies in the cell next to that of V at Larkhill is named Valerie Page.

* In the original comic, V leaves a violet carson after he kills someone.

* The publisher is Vertigo-which begins with a V

* V is eventually identified as the prisoner from Room 5 at Larkhill Internment Camp. The five doors are labeled with Roman numerals, so Room 5 is emblazoned with a "V". The number 5, when converted to binary numerals, is 101 (a possible allusion to the infamous torture room 101 in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, which has 5 syllables).

* V's hideout is accessed from the closed Victoria tube station, the damaged sign of which resembles a sideways V when Finch locates it.

* V's personal motto consists of the Latin phrase Vi Veri Universum Vivus Vici (By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe), which in turn consists of five words that begin with the letter V ("U" is written as "V" in Latin). Aleister Crowley also used the phrase as one of his personal mottos, a fact that appears in Alan Moore's later book Promethea. But V mentions only the origin of the phrase in Faust.

* November is the only month in the Gregorian calendar with the letter V in it.

* As Evey appears to give her speech to the public after she has assumed the identity of V, the visual angle of the frame causes a V to be formed between the edges of the building she is standing on and the building behind her.

* The government consists of the five branches which are identified with the five senses

* At Larkhill, V is injected with Batch "5", or in Roman numerals, Batch "V"

* In the graphic novel, V prepares his revenge for 5 years, but this was changed to twenty years in the film version

* Evey's birthday is at September,so her zodiac sign is probably Virgo which starts with V.

* Guy Fawkes Day happens on November 5

* "Shadow Gallery", V's hideout, is five syllables

* Codename V's Last word, at the end of the novel, starts with a V.

* November the 5th or 5th of November has 5 syllables.

* Much of V's dialogue is in Iambic Pentameter.

COBOL
posted 12/1/2007 12:54:50 PM

COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language) was one of the earliest high-level programming languages. It was developed in 1959 by a group of computer professionals called the Conference on Data Systems Languages (CODASYL). Since 1959 it has undergone several modifications and improvements. In an attempt to overcome the problem of incompatibility between different versions of COBOL, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) developed a standard form of the language in 1968. This version was known as American National Standard (ANS) COBOL. In 1974, ANSI published a revised version of (ANS) COBOL, containing a number of features that were not in the 1968 version. In 1985, ANSI published still another revised version that had new features not in the 1974 standard. The language continues to evolve today. Object-oriented COBOL is a subset of COBOL 97, which is the fourth edition in the continuing evolution of ANSI/ISO standard COBOL. COBOL 97 includes conventional improvements as well as object-oriented features. Like the C++ programming language, object-oriented COBOL compilers are available even as the language moves toward standardization.
Significant Language Features

* The language that automated business
* Allows names to be truly connotative - permits both long names (up to 30 characters) and word-connector characters (dashes)
* Every variable is defined in detail - this includes number of decimal digits and the location of the implied decimal point
* File records are also described with great detail, as are lines to be output to a printer - ideal for printing accounting reports
* Offers object, visual programming environments
* Class Libraries
* Rapid Application Capabilities
* Integration with the World Wide Web

COBOL, long associated with green screens, core dumps, and traditional mainframe connections, may at first glance seem at odds with object technology, push-button graphical interfaces, and interactive development environments. This perceived incongruity, however, is more a reflection of the mainframe's ability to keep pace with the innovations of desktop and client-server computing than a flaw in the COBOL language

Origins Of 47
posted 12/1/2007 12:53:50 PM

47 is an introverted character who almost always speaks in a calm, formal manner (with the exception of Hitman: Blood Money, where he somewhat understandably shouted "*****!" at Diana when she injected him from behind with a needle). He is not without charm should the situation call for it, notably to manipulate others in order to get closer to his target.[4][5] In his natural setting, however, he is usually seen alone.

One of his mottos appears to have become "Trust no one." He once demonstrated a high degree of devotion to Father Vittorio, the Sicilian priest who gave him shelter in Silent Assassin, going so far as to rescue Vittorio from the Russian mafia even though there was no monetary reward in it (in fact, according to Vittorio, 47 donated a large percentage of his earnings from Hitman: Codename 47 to the Catholic Church). In the end, 47's work spilled over into the Sicilian church, prompting him to sever his ties with it and become a nomad once more. 47 places some measure of trust in his Agency contact, Diana Burnwood, the person 47 is most regularly seen speaking with. As a rule, however, they never meet face-to-face unless absolutely necessary, especially during a mission.[6]

On rare occasions, 47 can also show a warm side to his personality. When being raised by Dr. Ort-Meyer, he befriended a rabbit.[7] A recurring character in the series with whom he has shown considerable forbearance is Lei Ling/Mei Ling (her name was changed to "Mei Ling" in Hitman: Contracts), rescuing her from sex slavery in the first game in exchange for a safe combination. He rescues her again from the exact same situation in the sequel, although in return he gets a keycard. In Hitman: Blood Money, 47 picks up a small canary during his travels. However, he later kills the canary to silence it when he hears an intruder approaching his position.
