Hey, did anyone else notice that if you express today's date numerically with double-digits for day and month--01/02/2010--it's a palindrome?

On a related note--They Might Be Giants, "I Palindrome I," on the Letterman show, 1992:

Sadly you can't see the (I assume) YouTube video. :-(

Just checked on the netbook (the blog post was written on a different machine), and the video shows up here just fine.

Did you pay your YouTube bill last month? :)

The date is also eleventyjillion in binary. I think.

Why do you call it a Palin-drome? What does Sarah have to do with numbers that are the same backwards and forwards?

And, by the way, something on this post seems to have caused Firefox to crash. I had to open this with IE to actually see it. The previous posts links on the sidebar were blinking overlaid on the left side of the blog. Then Firefox crashed when I went to the comments page.

Weird that people are having problems with this post--maybe there's some weird numerological technological conspirological thingamalogical thing going on with the mystic date....

I haven't had any problems with the page in Firefox under either Linux or Vista. Vince, of course, reported a problem in the embedded YouTube video the first time he checked the page and now Tom's reporting a problem, I assume under Firefox/Windows (since Tom switched over to IE). Anyone else having any technical issues, and if so, any suggestions as to what the culpable suspect might be.

The post was written in Firefox/Vista last night (I was playing some games), then when I saw Vince's comment I checked the page on a Dell netbook running Firefox/(Ubuntu) Linux; I'm writing this comment on a laptop that's also running Firefox/(Ubuntu) Linux. I haven't checked it out on IE lately or any other browsers at all (except the BlackBerry browser, which doesn't render the full page but I never really expected it to--that may be a mistake on my part), but maybe I should. Anyone have any ideas?

I hope it's not a buggy template, I'm really liking it right now....

Wow! (There's one right there!)

Oddly enough, last week we had our carpets cleaned by a company called
"Zero Rez". How bout that...Another!
