Number nerds around the world are celebrating the fact that today is 1/11/11 (or 11/1/11 if you're European). They'll have to wait another 11 years or so for 2/22/22 and 56 years for 1:23 a.m. on April 5, 2067 (1:23 4/5/67). Last year on Aug. 9, a little past noon we had 12:34:56.7 8/9/10.

What does all this mean? Nothing of real import, but it's kind of fun to note.
