You have an integer number where any digit appears at most twice. The sum of all neighboring four digits in this number is a square. Example: 205290 is such a number because no digit appears more than twice, and 2+0+5+2, 0+5+2+9, and 5+2+9+0 are squares. What is the maximum possible value for this number?

CRG gave me a 'ribbing' using Mario so I countered with Wario... you have to know about video game plumbers ... and bizzarro characters of a stienfool universe ... Don't worry, you didn't miss anything important. I tried a few more but can't get a bigger number.

By the way, skipjack, if you don't have any question to ask then just pass it to someone for the game to continue, ok?
