    Just noticed: in binary, today is 39 in binary, this doesn't happen very often (18 times every 10 years):

    100111 in binary is the number 39. (as in: the 10th of January 2011) (btw just realised, this the the UK rule not USA (in USA today would be 27))

    Other dates this year:

    01/01/11 = 23
    10/01/11 = 39
    11/01/11 = 55

    01/10/11 = 27
    10/10/11 = 43
    11/10/11 = 59

    01/11/11 = 31
    10/11/11 = 47
    11/11/11 = 63

    and just because i have lots of free time:
    if you add all the values (23 + 39 + 55...) you get 387 which, in binary, is 110000011 which is palindromic

    At least I'm not the only one that messes with binary.

    Wow, I didn't even see that... I haven't thought too much about binary for a few months, good eye.
