During the year 1999 this was the first paragraph of my homepage !

Dear Friends, another year full of palindromic discoveries started !

I wish you all the best for Anno Domini **13131**_{ 6}.

And I mean that for all the **555**_{ 8} days in it (or **1C1**_{ 14} if you like) !

There are exactly **303** primes smaller than or equal to 1999 [G. L. Honaker, Jr.]

1999 is the _{smallest} 4-digit prime containing the digits 1 and/or 9.

[G. L. Honaker, Jr.] This year **1999** might also be the Year of the Beast !

Just turn the new year upside down and read the first three digits...

**1999** becomes **6661**

Moreover G. L. discovered that both **1999** and **6661** are primes of the form 666n + 1.

Consequently he composed an integer sequence for Sloane's OEIS : see A037029 and A037030.

**6661** is the _{smallest} prime containing exactly three sixes [ A037065 ].

**6661** is the _{smallest} 4-digit prime containing only digits **1** and **6** [ A036933 ].
