The nerdy passing of time

On Monday, October 17th, I will be 16,000,000 minutes old. Want to know your age in prime birthdays, Venusian years, or fortnights? Check out Matt Parker's collection of links explaining How To Celebrate the Nerdy Passing of Time.


  1. I shall celebrate the occasion of your Sweet 16th megaminute by consuming a full billion nanoliters of root beer.  Skaal!

  2. Awww… the nerdiversary site reminder function doesn’t work, at least not for gmail:

    SMTP -> ERROR: Password not accepted from server: 535-5.7.1 Username and Password not accepted. Learn more at 535 5.7.1… u68sm893763yhh.6 SMTP Error: Could not authenticate. You need to verify your email. Go check

    I want to be reminded when I turn a billion seconds old!

  3. Ace! I hit a 222,222 and an 800,000,000 this morning!

    Edit: No I didn’t. I’m trying to do this stuff and I can’t even read dates correctly.

  4. wow, there’s some cool stuff on that site.  I love that it’s not too base-10-centric.

    Also, I have to set a reminder for myself – shortly after you turn 68, you will turn 2^31 seconds.  The idea of overflowing a signed int caries a lot of weight for me.
