UPDATE: Today’s column has been posted tomorrow, but, in an Einsteinian twist, can be accessed here.
You don’t see the numbers, but yesterday’s was my 2400th column in this space. And today’s is entered in the little machine my webmaster built for me years ago (thanks, Marc!) as “051111” for 2005-November-11.
I can’t wait for six years from now, when it’s “111111” — won’t that be cool?
You may think I’m leading up to taking a day off — 2400 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, for heaven’s sake. And by 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 80, for crying out loud. This is a big deal! It’s divisible by 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600! (And, sure, 120 and who knows what else!)
But actually I have a bunch of things I hope to post before the day, or at least the weekend, is out. For now, though, please talk among yourselves.
