Then the question would be, in which timezone, and AM or PM (for those on 12-hour clocks)? :)
Of course that combo could only have been beat 1000 years ago :)

Even though 101010 is binary for 42, I think there will be more people lining up for 11:11:11 on 11/11/11. It'll be a Friday.

101010 is the binary equivalent of 42.

Too bad the missing " 20 " , in all these 10/10/10 references sort of screws up the symmetry ..

I must confess, since I turned 62 today ... I guess I've had the missing 20 in my pocket all these years without knowing it. . . lol

How come there wasn't any recognition of symmetry across the galaxy back in 10/11/01?
Well it be any greater next year at 11/11/11?

My head is beginning to hurt. . . (sigh)

{edit}: Maybe it'll be a bit clearer to me at 10:10 PM this evening. . . (ouch, I just hurt my head again...!)

Until that time . . . Earl J.

I turned 42 on 09/09/99 . Is that profound, or what !

Earl_J wrote on 10/10/2010, 8:20 PM
cool. . . a 09/09/09 birthday. . . most excellent... (wink)

I wonder if there is a website for multiple-number/symmetrical birthdate people. . . my wife is FEB 22 ... she is due a 02/22/20 symmetrical birthday before too long . . .

might be fun to find it. . . hmmm...

Yea, 42, I remember that. I think!

At present I am 42+(225^.5). Or for the computer nerds out there 111001

Well anyway I did live to retire. That is always plus.

BTW did anyone get an email from Sony with an offer for pre-purchase?

I'd be willing to bet Sony misses the 10/11 release date since it's a holiday and downloads become available on Tuesday morning.

I'll be 42 on 10/10/13...not much symmetry there I'm afraid :(

Ha, no-one who actually makes a living from the success of their business takes Columbus day off.

It's just a School, and gov't job day off ( and maybe some well unionized employee's ).
