I think I've given up. Gamer's last hint "Also, this does have something to do with computers, but rather what you would do while using them." has thown me completely.

64 is a very common number for computers given that it's 2^6, and M is commonly used, as in Megabytes, Megahertz and so on, but the rest don't fit in this pattern. 3 is a number rarely seen in computers, unless we start working in other bases, at which point I throw in the towel.

"what you would do while using them"....

well, I type with my computer, but I see no connection between the letters, numbers, and poitions on my keyboard.

I do emails and log onto Flooble, but again, no connection spring to mind.

I program, but as one of Penny's solution has showed us once you go there you can make any connection you want.

I get back pains and drink energy drinks, but I don't think this is what Gamer's looking for.

So unless a beautiful seed-crystal-like hint comes along, I think I'll just wait for the answer to come out... Shows lack of spirit, I know, but no matter.
