We live in exciting* times for calendar geeks.
* not exciting.
So, has anyone got any PARTIES planned? Me neither.
Where are you from, Jersey? I'm going to stove your face in with an Aga.
Your meals were mega!
Dismissing me for not watching 'Masterchef: The Professionals'. A low ebb. The lowest ebb.
I'm going to offer you $10m to quit.
We can make this number one.
I think they are militant christians though.
call me when it's 5318008 day
'the millennium bug' was not a virus, it was a problem that occured cos programmers had been encouraged to save on a bit of file space(it was more expensive then) by recording dates thus "ddmmyy" rather than "ddmmyyyy"
you are stupid
that would have been brilliant (I think Im too angry)
problem due to coding.
Perhaps it is because it is refered to a 'bug' which is also used as a term for a 'germ' and you have made a sort of nursery school linkage to imagine that a virus is the same as a bug in IT terms.
Incidentally there was much scepticism surrounding the need for the worry about the millenium bug.....because basically nothing much went wrong.......but it wasnt bogus or a hoax, the reason nothing particularly bad happened is because across the world many many programmers did corrective work to fix all of these problems.....the reason that almost all critical systems got fixed is precisely because of the big media splash about it...it captured execs and manigers imagination enough so that they did not underestimate the extent of the problem and so they were allowed by shareholders and exec boards to actually dedicate enough resource so that we were all able to do the job to prevent the problem from manifesting itself
But I was on a millennium project for C&W at a fairly low level dogsbody capacity.
Morons who trot out "Oh lol look at everyone panicking just like at the millennium bug!!" can do one. Not sure if The_Incapacitant is doing that but he is a braying moron and deserves all the ire he gets.
which it isnt......Ive decided not to get so annoyed with him.....my technique will be to not to respond to things he says that get me angry, i will just troll and call him a name in some other thread
He's not having a party though.
I tell the best stories.
don't listen to the cynics.
I'm going to wish them all Yon Kippur and glad tidings for 10,10,10
Would be an easy way of remembering the birthday if he was a few days early/late.
She was 10 on 10/10 once and now she's 59 but on 10/10/10
ActuaLOL :DDD And he wants his friends to find out his birthday from the newspaper?? Poor lad probably thinks he really is gonna turn into Ben 10.
because it's my 20th birthday :D
On the downside: it's when the gov reveals it's spending review, so everyone will be bitching^10.
I need to know before i confirm my attendance
09/09/09 was better. it was my birthday then.
Or get a 'sexy' WPC stripper?
06/06/06, that was the best one. It was my birthday then.
Or get a 'sexy' devil stripper?
101010 is binary for 42, btw, the Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything
I've made a 201010 cake
You're gonna have to start again. I'll save you some time by getting rid of the first attempt for you, k?
I will have to start again.
ONLY 3 DAYS TO GO! 20102010
still can't believe the DiS is 10, 10/10/2010 party never happened. headliners pulled out moments before we were gonna announce it, so sadly the fun times didn't happen. maybe an 11/11/11 party would be more fun anyways?
It will last for precisely one minute. You should all come.
but decided that would be way too loserish.
but I'm not sure that wouldn't come across as stalkerish.
seriously, 5 years on this board - it's depressing when you have to post your own birthday thread so thank you!
