I've seen a car with the license plate LMC555
A standard 3 letter 3 digit plate for Australia, so perhaps someone is not aware.
Didn't get a shot of it though unfortunately.

Considering the maximum frequency of most 555 versions, I find the notion of a "555" motherboard absolutely hilarious.

must be one of them 'overclocked' boards. They overclock the 555 ... that's what that heatsink is for.

i know a TDA4555 which is a fully integrated PAL/NTSC decoder chip ...

although 555 is not available as the first digits. That is why all phone numbers mentioned in tv/movies begins with 555. Also mine is a mobile phone (the only phone I have, I don't have a landline phone.
