Footsteps in the snows of time

Binary Time and Date This Afternoon: 1023
Nice 10-digit binary string on the calendar today with a decimal expansion of 2¹º-1, or 1024-1=1023. 1024 is, of course, a number frequently encountered -- either directly, or as a factor -- in computer related things involving chips. For example, the "Large" size on Flickr is 1024 pixels wide. In honor of the occasion, I made this 1023 pixels wide and posted it on Flickr at 1:11:11, 1/11/11.
