I assume most of you already use this, or rather those of you who use Entourage and/or iCal, but don't forget to subscribe to the Typophile Calendar: http://www.icalx.com/public/typophile/Typophile

March 15, 1979.

That's the "Ides of March" for those who love your ancient Roman history. Another one of the small reasons why I am so crazy. Beware.

The International Day of Protest, of course - June 18.
Specifically, 1968. Hours after Cassandre took his life.

Mmm... mine is June 18th as well.
International Day of Protest makes a lot of sense to (for) me.

Tiff, do you want to re-collect dates that are already on the calendar? I am assuming that you are just building off the current collection.

I would also like to volunteer to help maintain the calendar, should the need arise.

yes, Grant, I think we'll just add to the current calendar. there are some mistakes/errors/problems on it and I've told Jared about our willingness to help. if anyone has subscribed the typophile calendar and notices errors please point those out too.

Marnie,
We have the same birthday! Well, give or take a few decades. I really like the "National Nothing Day" thing--now I feel special too.

I'd be willing to bet that Eric Gill and Giambattista Bodoni would also agree with us.

"Running shoes..."

Running shoes? You got Running shoes? I've got sneakers (as in U.S. Keds high-tops with a rubber circle on the ankle bone). I've got stuff in my refrigerater older than you :-)

Running shoes are Canadian. Sneakers are US o' A.

All of my "running shoes" (including the 25-year old ones) are Converse Chuck Taylor's.

Keds can only dream of being Chucks when they grow up.

As for your refrigerator, my condolences.

Chris, we must celebrate the celebration of not celebrating anything on National Nothing Day.

First born in NYC on Fathers Day, June 15, 1947.
My 15 minutes of fame came when I was announced on WNYE and it's been downhill ever since.

Does anyone have an interesting progression of their birthdate, like January, 23, 1945 (1-23-45) or March 21, 1954 (54.3.21)?

Hey Tiff... as long as you're compiling dates, I noticed that David Carson's birthday (today) is in the calendar as a timed event, rather than a 'all-day' event. Just something to tidy up while you're under the hood.

Yeah. I noticed that also, Grant. I'm still waiting for the keys though.
