    Aww, happy (belated) programmer's day to everyone

    Yesterday was Sept. 13, and it wasn't leap year, making it the 256th day of the year, thus Programmer's Day.

    I guess all your gifts to me got lost in the mail, just like all the expensive gifts I mailed to everyone else

    Does that mean the 45th, 90th, and 180th days of the year are engineers day? Or is it the 707th day of the year... wait a minute, damn there is no 707th day of the year...

    Engineers can celebrate Pi day (March 14, celebrate at 1:59).

    And you could have Root 2 Over Two day on July 7 (celebrate at 1:06, or 1:07 if you prefer to round).

    I'm still wondering when to celebrate "j day", as there really doesn't seem to be a good "sqrt(-1)" day. Of course, it could happen when I have free time (which is certainly imaginary, as much as I would like it to be real), or it could happen all the time (because every day is complex when you're an engineer).
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    Pi day is for mathematicians, we can't just steal their day!

    Tho j-day or Root two over two day sound both appealing.

    >because every day is complex when you're an engineer

    =) ::high five!:: And I guess we are only allowed a minute of the day since we're so precise... =) But we can raise the engineer-day-tolerance to get more time! =p
