Take the number 1010101 and rearrange it to represent 950.
Rotate the last three 1's to be diagonal lower-left to upper right, and place each one's lower left end as tangent the the upper left of its nearest 0, making three 6's in a row after the initial 1.
This forms 1666, which, in octal (base-8), is equivalent to decimal 950.
