I wouldn't trust Google when it comes to language. Have you ever tried Google Translate?  Cheesy

Hey, let's do that!

"Vires in Numeris" -> "Strength in Numbers"
"Vis in Numeris" -> "Do you want in Numbers"
"vis in numeris" -> "to do in the numbers"

Pick your choice.



This sucks! Now I'm totally confused. No wonder the Roman Empire fell. They couldn't even agree on defining a simple phrase. Lucky for US we have...

My INTP's intuition tells me that there is something right about

in numeris vires


Sorry but,

what follows is what you can find googling for "vis in numeris"

De numeris: MS Hannover, Landeskirchlichen Archiv D 10 Nr. 1 (PfA Bissendorf HS 20) ff. 186r-195v [inc: Quanta sit vis in numeris noverant hii…

The beginning ('incipit' in latin, which is 'inc:' in the reference above) says: Those (they?) were aware of how much strength (how much value) is in numbers...

Forto En Numeros... that's it in Esperanto, I think.
Actually, that would be "Forto En Nombroj" (strength in numbers [of things]) or "Forto En Ciferoj" (strength in figures / digits).

Even if it's dog Latin that I originally used internet groupthink to translate, I'm thrilled that my "Vires in Numeris" motto has caught on as well as it has.  Cheesy

"damn intuition sometimes is dead wrong" said I after looking at this  http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=%22in+numeris+vires%22

 Embarrassed


but note how efficient G has became lately

Really, --edit-- big bad G --edit-- it's freightening...

Oh yes,

and there is even another coin which uses it!

but I saw it too late to 'fix' it Smiley

A peek at a Latin dictionary confirms what spiccioli is saying about vires meaning "forces" in the military sense.

Just out of curiosity, how would one say, "you flourish (vireo) in numbers?"

Also, I think I speak for everyone when I say, get that stick out of your ass.  We'd have capitulated to your point sooner if you hadn't been so sanctimonious about it.

If you mean 'I grow thanks to the numbers' I'd say  'numeris augeo'.

It's worse than you think, Vladimir. Did you look at the time stamps of both postings? g (I use small case because I read somewhere that their algorithms can't detect it--yet) had the search results for that phrase a clear seven minutes prior to its posting here on this forum, therefore knew what you were going to think before you did.

Thank you spiccioli for bringing this up. The very least I can do now it to make sure that "vis in numeris" is on bitcoin.org.uk's logo.

And next time I go to an Uni I'll make sure that I take some Latin classes.




You're welcome.

spiccioli.

btw, I did write, a couple of months ago, to RSantana maker of the coinedbits coin, since he used the same motto for his coins, telling him the same thing about vis/vires!

This whole Lating thing is something that keeps returning and I'm starting to think that it keeps returning because it really is a beatiful motto, which clearly states something about bitcoins which so unique to them... but being "wrong" it cannot settle down like those ghosts in ancient castles Smiley

I'm glad I saw this issue brought up in another thread because I currently have Martin working a new design, therefore I would appreciate clarification on this concern before I give him the go ahead and continue tooling.

I always think it's funny when I find an English idiom that has a pretty exact (and nearly literal) rendering in Chinese.

人多势众

"Think twice" also has a sister saying in Chinese except it's more like "think thrice"  Smiley

I'm rather good with Linux.  If you're having problems with your mining rig I'll help you out remotely for 0.05.  You can also propose a flat-rate for some particular task.  PM me for details.

I might be able to help -- what phrase are you looking for? This thread is a bit confusing, to say the least.

I took all 3 years of Latin (Latin I, II and III) in 2 years.

Strength in Numbers

And while you're at it, what is the Latin word for Bitcoin?

I just now thought of something else. My dad's real name was Bronus before it was shorten to Bruno while at Ellis Island. I'm now wondering if I'm a Latin Lugan.

Since we are on Latin here I now have a perfect motto for namecoin:
