Plus the note :

"It has something to do with C _ M _ _ T _ R S

And a G _ _ M _ N _ _ _ O U T"

What number do the chars §!=) stand for ?

I think

The incomplete words on the note make it read "It has something to do with COMPUTERS and a GERMAN LAYOUT"


Looking up the German keyboard layout, the four characters on the paper result from Shift+3, Shift+1, Shift+0, and Shift+9 in that order, and the number being 3109.
