What comes after 9999

This is not really not related to my other postings, but I was curious and I thought I would share...

Today I took the 10000 th. photo with my Nikon 5700 digital camera. I was aware that I was approaching the number and curious to see what happens when the number goes past 9999, since the camera only allows 8 character file names e.g. DSCN9999.

Well, it skipped 10000 and went from 9999 to 0001.

So the 10000 th. photo is actually the 100001 st. (if that makes any sense). Mystery solved! There were no big fireworks or balloon drops, just a simple number change, and for those of you who were curious what the picture was, both 9999 & 0001 were pictures of my mom and aunt. It wasn't intentional, it just worked out that way and I think it's fitting.

That's all folks, just a bit of weekend trivia.
