comatose or pretty close

(No, the lyric title can’t really be tied to the post this time – I couldn’t find an appropriate song about computer programming, oddly enough.)

I think this is a sign that I have been far too long in the land of computer programmers and code, but I got this picture in an email today at work, and I laughed, outloud, and then cried when I realized what I had just acknowledged as funny. (Okay, so I didn’t really cry, I watched a little bit of my soul tear off and fall away.)

Cache code is only funny on cakes, kids. Elsewhere it's serious business.

What? You didn’t immediately laugh? That’s a bit of code used to call today’s date. The 60000 is today, 6/19/2009, as a DAT. Hilarious, right?

Oh.

It only comes out as a multiple of 10,000 once every 27 years or so. Still not interested. I see.

Nevermind, then.
