Where Were You on 11/11/11 at 11:11:11?

Where were you on 11/11/11 when the clock struck 11:11:11?

Have you ever entered 1111111111 as test data into a numeric field or 11/11/11 into a date field and 11:11:11 into a time field?  I know I have.

So it was kind of fun to see 11/11/11 approaching.

At my company, we have a lot of meetings pretty much every day, and of course on Friday, November 11, 2011 we had an 11:00 meeting.  We thought it might be fun to take a brief pause at the appropriate time to watch the clock count down to 11:11:11.  And so we did. copyrightjoestrazzere

So now I can always remember exactly where I was, and exactly what I was doing on 11/11/11 at 11:11:11.  
  • Working for a company I'll call B..
  • In the North Conference Room
  • At a weekly project meeting 
  • For a product I'll call V...
  • With Gail, Mark, Phil, Bob, Kesav, Cathy, and Dan (on the phone)
  • Laughing
