I remember in 2000 there was some residual Y2K dread that things might have gone leftwards on February 29th, because of the funny business around years divisible by 100 not being leap years except when divisible by 400. If we would have been a bit faster on the learning curve, that would have created a slightly different flavor to the Y1.9K bug.
Hard to believe this is already the second leap year since 2000.
And here I am like so many other people, posting today for no other reason than to post on a leap day.
I’ll give you three semi-random items:
- Lost is so freaking cool. Great science fiction storytelling on the tube. I loved last night’s episode, “The Constant.”
- I’m this close to booking a flight out to Boston for the FSF annual associate member meeting next month.
- The HDR photo below really caught my eye. I like the colors and the industrial feel. Thanks to heiwa4126 for sharing “Machinery” with a free license: Creative Commons Attribution 2.0.
