    01 maybe?

    Why write it 01 instead of just 1? And 00 instead of 0?
    It has to do with some positional system where the first number means something and the second means something else and the two numbers combine to look like a ordinary two figured number.

    Not the one. I can give a hint if you want one.

    Not quite THAT subtle, the comma's are optional, just a way for me to group the numbers. They are really all single digit numbers.

    Are these base 10 numbers?

    Yes, regular integers, no hype there. The trick is figuring out what they represent. They are all single digit numbers also, I used comma's to make sure I had the count right.

    Is it based off of some numbering system like maybe a base 7?

    I am not quite 100% sure, but I think it is 43.

    no, just base 10, nothing sneaky mathematically speaking, no negative bases or anything like that. Just a string of numbers.
    43 is close but no cigar. You have to figure out what the numbers represent.

    Are they times by any chance?
