# Haiko/Gates: Unholy Alliance or One and the Same?

1. It started easy enough, I noticed "Haiko" and "Gates" both had five letters. So I looked further into it and couldn't believe what I found:

Bill Gates is widely considered the wealthiest man on the planet.
Has anybody ever heard Haiko deny, even once that he was the wealthiest man on the planet?
Why would Haiko so carefully gloss over that with us?

Nobody has ever seen Haiko and Bill Gates together. Only two possibilities here:
1. They feel a need to hide their relationship, or
2. They're the same person.

Look at the ascii codes: "HAIKO" adds up to 364 - "GATES" adds up to 372.

I know what you're thinking. "It's off by 8, but if I were on the jury it's close enough to have me screaming 'GUILTY! HANG HIM!'". Where's the missing 8? It could be the number of unique letters in 'Microsoft'. But it's even more inciminating than that. Look at the letter arrangements of the names:

H to G = - 1
A to A = 0
I to T = +11
K to E = - 6
O to S = + 4

What do you get when you add (-1)+0+11+(-6)+4?

Yep. You guessed it, the missing 8. Which just 'happens' to be a byte.

I have more proof but I have to get this off to the papers and get to work on my "Is Haiko also Bill Clinton" research.

2. LOL....If Haiko were really Gates....I'm sure he'd dish out some of the money and buy all these Affiliate Networks...then hire all of us to work for him...(Hey Haiko....I'm ready to retire from radio, so please hire me when you buy all those networks [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img])

4. Jaybat,

I must commend you. Stunning research! Provacative assumptions! Impressive science! Air-tight conclusions!

After further study with a properly certified and calibrated Ouija Board, I have this evidence to contribute:

If you take the letters from "Haiko's" web presence AKA "ABESTWEB" and "Bill Gate's" web presence AKA "MSN" and re-arrange the letters, the resulting anagram is:

"WEB'S BEST MAN"

I think this is conclusive evidence but I will leave you to draw your own (incorrect) conclusions.

And may I say Hi to Bill, [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] (oops..."Haiko") [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

We're on to you "Haiko"
