Happy New Year

I may or may not be busy getting ready to celebrate the end of the year today. I may or may not be intoxicated later on. In either case, I wanted to wish everyone Happy New Year!

For your reference here is the year 2009 in all it’s irregular glory:

Apparently, 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy and also the year of Ox according to the Chinese calendar (last year of the Ox being 97). This useless trivia was brought to you by the combined power of the intertubes.

Speaking of which, as you may or may not know, the internet (and by extension the universe) ends on January 19, 2038 at 03:14.08 UTC sharp. This only leaves us 29 years of awesome so make this one count folks!

See you all next year! Enjoy your New Year’s eve celebrations. If your preferred calendar does not roll over to the next year today, please keep in mind that mine does and my future posts will be dated appropriately.

Also, due to the celebration of the International Hangover Day, there will be no post tomorrow.

    I was not aware of the date of the end of the Internet. Please enlighten me, oh great one! :P

    My calendars all evolve either cute asians or unix terminals, and both are up to date :D

    @IceBrain: It was a joke about the end of unix epoch. Look it up. It is very similar to the Y2K bug and it will be averted just as easily, seeing how most modern unix and linux systems are using 64 bit integers to store the epoch time these days.

    Happy New Year to you Luke. And thanks again for regularyl making my day with your posts.
    Also thanks for sharing my passion for Morrowind.

    By the way, I have seriously restarted playing Oblivion and I want to write here publicly that this game is really neat. Neater than I thought at first glance when I played it first last year. I got the hold on both the lockpicking and the speechcraft systems and I have to admit that they are not that bad. So I say it again: I changed my mind: Oblivion does rock!
