Subject: Magic Number for New File system

Hi All,

We are planning to write a new file system for our requirements. Is
there any standard way to allocate a magic number for this new file
system? Also how to go about writing the new file system?

thanks and regards,
I think a magic number is the least of his problems.

Heh. I wonder if anyone will tell him to use 0x0001D107.

I think the magic number he's looking for is pi. The implementation of his file system is in there somewhere, right?

I've been thinking about designing a new automobile for my companies specific needs. It will be light weight, get great gas milage and have a large cargo area to haul things around. My question is how much air pressure should we use in the tires? Also, how do you go about building a car?

Perhaps someone should let him know...

The 'Magic Number' of 42 could solve some of his issue...

Clearly the preferred storage medium for this file system will be magic beans. And if you need to expand the file system, you just plant them.

"thanks and regards, I am Ravi."


"We are planning to write a new file system for our requirements."

-Then why did you have to cast Magic Number?- ?!??

Roll the dice to see if I created a new file system yet.
