If you get excited about numbers, today is a spetacular day.
It is a rare opportunity to present the date in binary form (that’s not the actual binary date however).
So just how rare is it?
Have you figured out how many times in a century you can represent the date with 1s and 0s without getting your arse kicked in public?
Very Happy New Year to you and yours! if you’re in Dallas, I have extra Cotton Bowl tickets, give a shout.
01/01/00, 01/10/00, 10/01/00, 10/10/00
01/01/01, 01/10/01, 10/01/01, 10/10/01
01/01/10, 01/10/10, 10/01/10, 10/10/10
Percentage of days you can be slightly cool with numbers, or feel slightly, smuggly numerically superior – also known as “clever” . . .
Or, .03% of the century.
We only have 3 more left this century, so grab your binary buddies and part hats. We’re gonna party like it’s 10-10-10!

My brain hurts!!
I’ve done extensive binary numbers when getting Bachelor’s in Computer Science. It’s not too bad once you get into it.
Happy New Year Kate! 😀
