Sunday is October 10, 2010 – or 10/10/10. That's a big deal to computer nerds, math whizzes and others who get geeked over binary numbers, as this post at Wired.com celebrates.
At least four groups on the photo-sharing site Flickr.com are planning to capture the day in their own ways.
The environmental action website 350.org is urging followers to take part in a "Global Work Party" to raise awareness and fight global warming at the local level.
"We're calling it a Global Work Party, with emphasis on both 'work' and 'party,'" the website says. "In Auckland, New Zealand, they're having a giant bike fix-up day, to get every bicycle in the city back on the road. In the Maldives, they're putting up solar panels on the President's office. In Kampala, Uganda, they're going to plant thousands of trees, and in Bolivia they're installing solar stoves for a massive carbon neutral picnic."
And there's this, from The Unofficial Apple Weblog:
"Joshua Hill (aka p0sixninja) has tweeted that a public iOS 4.1 jailbreak is imminent. The jailbreak, codenamed greenpois0n, is due for release on Sunday, October 10th, assuming there are no last minute stumbling blocks. This jailbreak leverages the SHAtter exploit developed by @pod2g, based on a crash discovered by Hill and is expected to work on newer iOS 4.1 devices, including the refreshed Apple TV, iPod touch 4G, and iPhone 4."
If you know what this means, go for it.
But if you're more into soft grass than software, Sunday might be a good day to apply some 10-10-10 fertilizer to your lawn. (That's 10 percent each of nitrogen, potash and phosphorus. But you knew that.)
