Just thought it's worth to make a short note about the today date:

04-04-04

- only happens once a year (05-05-05, ...)
- it doesn't matter if you use the us or euro date format today
- looks funny

It doesn't happen once a year, there was no 99-99-99.
It only happens 12 times a century.

Ah, the cynical wisdom of former centuries? How do you know that it won't be different this time? I read so many predictions that seem to be based on an assumption that old rules are not valid any more.

Another notable moment of the past:

1:23:45 on 6/7/89

But I'm waiting for 1:11:11 on 1/11/11.

I missed this thread yesterday - I kept getting a "Day not found" error.

What about 11:11:11 on 1/11/11?

That too, but 1:11:11 comes first. :)

The WebmasterWorld community is such that there are probably pairs of members who could celebrate 1:11:11 and 11:11:11 on 1/11/11 at the same moment, thanks to being in different time zones.

That makes the world seem so much smaller now...

Tomorrow's my birthday. Not that it has any relevance to being a straight number date (04/08) but it is a multiple of 2 and I am wishing for a subscription to WW. :)

Also, does anyone get the phenomenon of waking up at 1:11am or 2:22am, etc? I get that a lot these days. I'm thinking it's too much number-related stress at work.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, bantam. And happy birthday tomorrow. It may interest you that my computer showed 20:40 when I read your post. And when I came back to answer you it showed 21:42. And now it is 22.02.

Many people have lots of funny experiences with numbers.

It's not long until 20:04 on 20-04-2004 either (for those who use the dd-mm-yyyy format only!)
