Is 10/10/10 Binary Day ? Or is it the answer to the ultimate question perhaps ?


Because if you convert the binary code 101010 into decimal you get the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything....42!

In recognition of this revelation I have decided to call today "Douglas Adams Day" in tribute to the author who for years has given me much to smile about whilst reading his books, namely "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy", "The Restaurant at the end of the Universe" and the wholly confusing but very amusing "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" which Douglas published in 1987. Sadly "Douglas Adam's Day" will only occur once, and that is today, so have a good one!

And Remember....Don't Panic!
