    2) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> This is a very UK based series, a comedy duo, famous for their glasses and these letters formed the basis for a very famous sketch</span hide>

    3) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> These numbers actually stand for (in order) 1,2,3,..... The piece of aparatus where these appear on can also write words, do you remember as a kid writing shelloil (71077345)</span hide>
