    123456789 Day: Big moment arrives!

    For the numerically inclined, Today marks a major alignment in sequential history.

    At exactly 12:34:56, the time and date was 12:34:56 07/08/09. This only happens every 100 years or so. It's well worth partying!

    In Europe and Canada, which marks the day in front of the month, I suppose this will happen next month - on August 7th.

    Will this alignment usher in something phenomenal? It could be a good day to do something special for yourself.

    Does this mean the GPO Aria manual is ready?
    Wider is better.

    Yes and it only has 10 pages: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. The next 10 pages will be printed over 100 years or so.

    I slept through it...

    at least I can still look forward to the following dates: 8/9/2010, 9/10/2011, 10/11/2012 (if the world still exists), 11/12/2013, and 12/13/2014. What a wonderful 5 years it will be!

    It will because the Mayan `apocolypse' date is December 21, 2012. We'll still have just over two months!

    You are, of course, cheating! It's really 07/08/2009. 07/08/09 really only happens once for every calendar system.
