177 - oh, and Bayaker...all these obscure references will cause some confusion.

Not that I care; it's fun to see what you folks come up with. Educational, too. But still, some will be confused.

Sorry, I'll try to be less obscure.

But I thought obscurity with a reasonable(or googleable) enough clue was the point, otherwise who would come back just to see what the next group of Arabic numerals is?

In play:
