Today is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything


Posted on 10 October 2010 - 10:10

Warning: super-geeky stuff ahead :-)

Today is October 10, 2010, or in other words 10-10-10. This is in itself a noticeable date, but it gets even more interesting when you consider that 101010 is the binary value for 42!

So today is not only 10-10-10, but also the day of the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything!

And to be even more geeky (or scary): guess who made me notice that? My 14 years old son...

Good point Patrick, but I won't change my blog's date template just for this entry :-)

This is wonderful. Got married on 101010 at 10:10 because of all its geeky associations and pleasing binary balance. Found your website as I noodle through the confusion of setting up a new site using Drupal with no developer's background training. When Hitchhiker's Guide came out, I was learning to write programs in Cobol and Basic. I like your site and hope to get mine there eventually.
