    It's probably the keyboard part number / serial number.

    Not a CIS number--they're usually two-part xxxxx,xxxx.

    also, iirc CIS numbers were in octal -- so no 8's or 9's. I believe the reason for this goes back to CompuServe using 36-bit DEC systems, and the login convention on those systems using octal numbers for programmer/project numbers.
