### Count to a million in OCTAL and be the first forum to do it!

This is a first for TBAAJ, and likely a first for all of the other forums, but we'll try it, and see if we can do it.

It's CTAM in OCTAL!

The difference here is that we post using the octal, or base-8, counting system. This means that there are 8 numbers/symbols (in this case, 0-7) per unit, before progressing to the next. For example, the number 7 would also be 7 in octal, but 8 would be written as 10 in octal. Likewise, 15 in decimal is 17 in octal, but 16 (decimal) is 20 in octal.

Here's a link to the Wikipedia page, for more info about the octal number system: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octal

The same rules that apply to the other counting threads, also apply here.

Ready? We'll start:

1

(In case you didn't know, there are various different number bases in use - the most common is decimal (base 10), which we use virtually all the time. The second most common is binary (base 2), which is used quite a lot in computing. Other common bases are base 8 (octal) and base 16 (hexadecimal).)
