It was the 8th Project Red Alert release and 888 is an especially lucky number in Chinese numerology.

Solid intel. I always thought it was the three bearing thing as well. I won't dispute your knowledge though. Smiley

An interesting question asked and answered. Thanks Nathan.

Such a great thread. The date 08/08/08 was a big deal on the Chinese calendar, thus the 08/08/08 edition has the numbers written in Chinese.

How floaty is the 44?

We measured it on a floaty-o-meter and it scored a 44.

I just took mine from my 888 classic. I've got the white o-rings on my aqua as well and I wouldn't mind finding a source in case I ever needed to replace them.
