What’s a namber? A namber is a word that acts as a mnemonic for a number. For example, 65 is drum, and 181 is push.
A namber address uses an arbitrarily-chosen list of nambers to represent each of the numbers from 0 to 255 in order to assemble four words to represent any IP address. Metafilter.com’s namber is earth.frog.brown.tooth, and mysteryrobot.com conveniently provides translation and forwarding to the real IP address. —What’s a namber? (Metafilter)
