Happy New Year 41UE

According to the Unix religion time itself began on January 1, 1970 of the Gregorian calendar at midnight GMT.  So Happy New Year 2011 to the UK and Happy New Year 41UE (Unix Epoch) to all hackers and all computers (sentient, semi-sentient and even toasters, they hate it when you ignore them).

The traditional form of celebration is to play video games (or Settlers), drink strong coffee spiked with Bailey's, sing 'Daisy Bell' and send a Happy New Year's email to all your friends and family (scripted three hours earlier, of course, to be sent at midnight so that your game won't be interrupted).

Happy New Year Nerds
