If You Build It, They Will Come.

I read Jen's blog about yesterday's "Historic event." I also saw this event made the front page of the local newspaper. For those of you who don't know, the historic event was that yesterday at 8:02pm, the date/time was 20/02 20:02 2002. This was said to have been the first time the date/time was a complete palindrome in 1001 years (10/01 10:01 1001) and due to the fact that the clock only goes up to 23:59 it will never happen again. Sadly, nobody thought this through.

November 11, 1111 at 11:11 am. (11/11 11:11 1111) was only 891 years ago.
December 21, 2112 at 9:12 pm (21/12 21:12 2112) is in 110 years.
