Today is 10/10/10 by most people's calendars. 101010 is 42 in binary. Going to celebrate by watching the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. No, not the Disney version, the BBC one.

My youngest was very excited to observe that it was 10:10 on 10/10/10 yesterday morning. She did not, however, convert any of that to binary.

Oh, well, one step at a time [Wink]

So how do we pass the time until two minutes past eleven on the eleventh of November two-thousand and eleven?

11:02 11-11-2011

(other Palindromic dates may be available [Wink] )

Well...some of that time can be happily passed with some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey entertainment. [Razz]

(Just a few short months away!)

I would imagine that puns might pass the time. [Wink]
If we all rise to the occasion and give it a go in the other thread, I'm sure the time will melt away...

Personally, I work so much with SQL-type dates... The next big one will be on 2010-10-22 01:01:02! [Big Grin] (Do note that it is a double-palindrome date, made of twice the palindrome number 2010102)

so is "dAb" a palidrome or "ليبيا" ‎, both begin and end with different letters, but one side is a miror image of the other.
