Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day! Thankfully, we have gotten past the milestone where the date can be written with neverending strings of 1s, greatly suppressing the number of date-related posts you can expect on Facebook today. In fact, today's date string, 111114 (or 141111 if you prefer order-of-magnitude sorting like me, or 11112014 if you're one of those pansy programmers already worried about a Y3K bug) has absolutely no significance in the natural or man-made world. The only time you will ever see 111114 in other contexts is if you do really, really poorly on a binary math exam.

I am working today, but using the holiday as an excuse to take the day off from new website content, since the intern who transcribes my posts is on federal leave (and he was the only candidate who could correctly spell HREF when I said it out loud during the interview process).

To pass the time in your quiet office, free of governmental distractions, enjoy this Newsday Tuesday feature I wrote six years ago about Autotune.
