icon An unfairly difficult number puzzle (-1)  
I am thinking of a 9-digit number. It is a 9-digit number that has been calculated at least once somewhere in this very forum, on this very website. What is the number I'm thinking of?

That would be a really unfair puzzle. Don't worry, that's not it. But I am thinking of that 9-digit number. And it can be calculated. The calculations involved in finding the number are sufficient to get you down to eight options, which must then be brute-forced in some way. What I want to know is this:

What are the eight options?

I will give you one hint, and one hint only, to help you on your way: the most important number that is related to this puzzle, but is not the solution, is 7.

It seems I may have stumbled upon a genuine stumper. Very well, here is another clue:

When I said "in this very forum," I wasn't talking about the Caravel Games forums; I was talking about the Forum Games forum.

Perhaps it's time for another hint?

The nine digit number I'm not actually looking for is in another thread in Forum Games that I've posted in recently. A puzzle thread.

There is this:
http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=1851&page=87#416658
I'm still scouring that thread for ideas. Can't find anything on page 7 (my first thought) though maybe I'm not thinking "out of the box" enough.

You're on the right track. Look a little deeper.
