I love weird orthography, and have been meaning to post something about 12480 for quite some time. It's a notation system for hexadecimal numbers; actually, a set of notation systems, associating each hex digit with a color, a cursive letter, a non-cursive letter, any of several cool science-fiction-y looking other scripts, and even spoken sound used to create words were each digit can be voiced as either a consonant or a vowel to make any number pronouncable.

This is the kind of thing that makes me want to found a whole new civilization, just to use it.

My occultist readers may notice that these correspond to the figures of Western divinatory geomancy ...
