Time Change

Cidu Bill on Mar 13th 2013

cidu-timechange.gif

Speaking of time changes… as always, Wordpress will be putting queued posts online an hour late (1:02am ET instead of 12:02am) until it gets its act together. This has been an issue twice a year for at least the past 7 or 8 years. Seriously, this whole Daylight Saving Time thing isn’t brain surgery: you’d really think they’d figure out how to program their system to make the change-over automatically.

(and yes, this post is going online on time — but that’s because I’m manually changing it)

Bonus LOLs

Cidu Bill on Mar 12th 2013

Several people sent me Sunday’s Dark Side of the Horse, which probably works better on its original page.

And Chak sent me this as a LOL, but I already had it queued up as a CIDU (as as far as I’m concerned it still is):

Formula

And the metatext doesn’t seem to be much help:
Assume r’ refers to the radius of Earth Prime, and r” means radius in inches

I don’t follow basketball; is this a reference to something specific?

XCIDU

So the other day my wife and son looked at me in disbelief and said “You never heard of Etsy? Everybody’s heard of Etsy.”

It did sound vaguely familiar, though, and I realized it was because I had this queued up as a CIDU.

Now that I get it, it is kind of funny.

I mean seriously, shouldn’t this have run December 21?

If you think of a topical reference a couple of months too late, maybe you should just file it away until the next end-of-the-world.
