1337 (pronounced 'leet' or 'elite' ) has been around for decades, long before the TV show Numbers.It's actually a good way to make your passwords more secure without resorting to meaningless strings of letters and numbers, because you can use number and symbol substitution in an easy-to-remember password or passphrase.Read about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet.
