And time time sponsored by ……urist is 01:02:03 04/05/06

(Sponsor removed to keep legal happy - brits will understand exactly what the subject means!) So it's 29 days early for me (being a Brit who do dates the "correct" way - ie dd/mm/yy, and boy is that still confusing me being over here), but tonight at three seconds after two minutes past one o'clock in the morning, on the 5th of April 2006, in US time format, it makes it 01:02:03 04/05/06. I was trying to come up the word for something like that but all I could think of was a palindrome. I know that's not right, but if you know the right word, please let me know..... I can always blog about it again on the 4th of May 🙂

    Uuuugggghhh, what a day?!  I’ve had more weirdness happen to me this morning since, well longer…

    I remember being back in school and noticing a similar time event…(you had to involve the seconds)

    12:34:56 7/8/90

    You’ll be pleased to know that being British this was in August…

    It’s funny how little ‘numbers’ things like this interest us techies!

    My girlfriend gets annoyed when I look at the dash of the car and point out how the mileage is about to tick over a big number like 20000 miles or is palindromic like 0022200…

    For how long have you been waiting to post this? 😉

    Hi John,

    I’m a day or so too late for the British 01:02:03 04/05/06 but I see that even though you write dates correctly you have switched from virtualisation to virtualization 😉

    Hope everything is good with you over the pond.

    Cheers, Mark
