I have a points system running on the MuNu forum, whereby people can earn points for posting (or getting comments to their posts), spend points to play games, and win points by getting high scores on games.
The points are named pengos, after the Hungarian currency up to 1946, which during the 40's suffered the worst inflation in history:
In 1941, the Pengoe was valued at 3.46 to the U.S. Dollar. Both during and shortly after World War II, however, the government printed billions of Pengo to offset the tragic results of war on the Hungarian economy. By March 3, 1946, 1 U.S. Dollar was equivalent to 10.3 million Pengoe. In the same year, a new currency unit was issued, Known as the Mil-pengo, which was equivalent to 1,000,000 pengoes. Soon after, the Bil-pengo denomination arrived. What you see here is a note valued at 10,000,000,000,000,000 Pengoe! On the last day of July, the rampant inflation ended with the issuance of the forint, an entirely new unit valued at a rate of one per four hundred million quadrillion pengoes.I have added a small tweak, which transfers pengos spent in the games arcade into my account. Having done that, I'm now curious as to how many pengos are being issued by the system, and how they are being spent. In fact, I want to develop a proper double-entry book-keeping system to keep track of pengos.
