[edit] Hints

Hint One
    As mentioned earlier, the numbers are lined up according to some rule or idea.

    Continuing the string out to the left, the number that would go in front of the first number is zero.

    The number that comes after the final three is one.

Hint Two
    If you were to break up the string of numbers, the first group is "1231."

    Does this group make you think of anything? Anything at all?

Hint Three
    If you need another hint, look no further than your closest calendar.

    You should find numbers lined up in a similar fashion within its pages.
