Why is the main chatroom for Programming Puzzles & Code Golf called "The Nineteenth Byte"?

Where did the name come from? Is it a reference to something?


1 Answer 1


See the meta thread "Let's think of a creative name for our chatroom":

Well, the traditional generic name for the country club bar is "the nineteenth hole", which suggests The Nineteenth Byte or something like that. -- dmckee


That name is perfect; it is exactly 19 bytes in size -- Justin
