In the movie Ultraviolet (2006), the character Six refers to Violet as "Vi", which is the roman numeral for 6. The director has said that in an alternate cut, Violet is actually Six from the future. This is actually an interesting detail, but it's from a shitty movie so its still a shittymoviedetail

Cistercian numerals developed by the Cistercian monastic order in the early thirteenth century at about the time that Arabic numerals were introduced to northwestern Europe. They are more compact than Arabic or Roman numerals, with a single character able to indicate any integer from 1 to 9999.

Mayan Numerals | 1

The numerals consist of three symbols:

Zero, represented as a shell (we will use Γ)

One, a dot (we will use 1)

Five, a bar (we will use |)

The Mayan numerical system is base 20. After the number 19, larger numbers are written in a kind of vertical place value format (we will do horizontal. e.g. 3|| 1) using powers of 20: 1, 20, 400, 8000, 160000, etc. Also, put hyphen between each digit. (e.g. 1|-Γ-3||)

Hereβs how to start counting:

Decimal on the left, Mayan on the right.

0 - Γ

1 - 1

2 - 2

...

5 - |

6 - 1|

...

9 - 4|

10 - ||

...

19 - 4|||

20 - 1-Γ

21 - 1-1

22 - 1-2

...

40 - 2-Γ

...

399 - 4|||-4|||

400 - 1-Γ-Γ

Hopefully this makes sense. Mayan numerals can be confusing, so if you donβt know what number to put next just ask me.

I made an app that identifies chords using Roman numeral notation

Hi! First time poster here. As a music theory student, I've always had the thought that a tool that can show you in real-time what chord is being played would be really useful - especially in remote settings, where audio quality might be a problem. So to improve music theory instruction during COVID times, I developed a desktop app that can display chords you play on a MIDI keyboard, using Roman numerals and figured bass. I've scoured the Internet for such a tool but could not find one, so I decided to make one myself - and made it open-source.

Using this app would, naturally, require you to own a MIDI keyboard. Also, note that the app itself doesn't generate any sound, so you would need to combine it with some notation software like Musescore to actually hear some sound. The app does, however, also include a simple keyboard visualizer if you find it useful.

Being a music theory student, I know my knowledge of music theory is limited, so feel free to point out any mistakes I made! I also welcome any feedback, as I hope to expand this tool to encompass more chords and features.

If you're interested, here is the link to my github repository. Simply head down to the Downloads section to give it a try. It supports macOS, Windows, and Linux.

The role of Roman Numerals in Arithmancy

I was reading about the use and history of Roman numerals (as one does), and it turns out that the Hindu-Arabic numerals we use today were first introduced to Europe (or at least written in a document that survives today) in 970 in Spain. Which means the founders of Hogwarts almost certainly used Roman numerals. Additionally, Hindu-Arabic numerals were slow to catch on, and even slower in academic situations. John Crossley, author of βOld-fashioned versus newfangled: Reading and writing numbers, 1200-1500β, said:

>There was also a clear distinction in the domains in which the two kinds of numerals were used. Roman numerals were used in academia where universities taught about abstract properties: square numbers, triangular numbers, etc. Hindu-Arabic numerals were used for the practical world of commerce.

The use of Hindu-Arabic numerals didn't really become ubiquitous until the 1500s, after the printing press made information spread simpler. With the longer lifetimes of wizards, the International Statute of Secrecy being put into place in the late 1600s could reasonably be in the same lifetime, but definitely within two.

It seems reasonable to me that when the Statute was implemented, wizards could very likely have still been using primarily if not exclusively Roman numerals. How would this have affected things? What if the wizards are still using Roman numerals as a distinguishing factor from the muggles? How would Arithmancy work with Roman numerals? Depending on the percentages of the different backgrounds in the Wizarding world (muggle-raised vs. wizard-raised vs. both), this could be part of the reason Arithmancy has a reputation for being a difficult class--switching to a completely different number system from the one you were raised with is surprisingly difficult.

I know people are probably light-years ahead of me, but how high have you been able to name your direct heirs (excluding secondary heirs and others). I've only gotten so high since my heirs die before they can take the throne and get the roman numeral added, or if I click on my grandfather's name instead of my father's so I get King lothaire II...the sequel. So I wanna see you guys got to like King George the LXXXVI.

Arabic numerals as page numbers?

Iβm looking for a way to do this in Word and Publisher. (I have Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2019, in case that is relevant.)

Iβve tried setting my keyboard to Arabic (Egypt) and clicking βpage number format.β The drop down has options for Arabic letters, but not Arabic numbers.

Iβve also tried another trick I saw on YouTube where the YouTuber simply highlighted the page number and hit the βright to left text directionβ button and the English numeral changed to Arabic. That hasnβt worked for me either.

Note: When I say Arabic numerals, I donβt mean English numbers. I mean Eastern Arabic numerals. Ω‘Ω’Ω£Ω€Ω₯Ω¦Ω§Ω¨Ω©Ω  I can work with Urdu numerals too if Eastern Arabic is not an option.

Using roman numerals is annoying, confusing and does nothing better than using normal numerals.

Look, I dont know how it works in every country, but in mine everything from numbering the year of the century to numbering the classes of an highschool or elementary one.

I dont really know if only Latin countries still use this numerals, or every other country does so. However, my opinion stays the same, those roman numerals have no good use and can be misleading.
