    Is it significant that this is the same day as the Cuban Missile Crisis went public?

      Damn! I predicted July. No soup for me.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

            No, but you will get a copy of Nero.

              Thread split needed, methinks....
              Thanks -- I'll Caeser the chance of that -- but will it work with my Rome-ing profile. If not, it would be pretty gaul-ing

                  Also a date notable for the birthdays of:

                  Franz Liszt (1811) and actors Derek Jacobi, Jeff Goldblum, Catherine Deneuve & Christopher Lloyd (my favourite mad scientist; "Back To The Future" & its sequels) & Klingon: "The Search for Spock") who are 71, 57, 66 and 71 respectively.

                  From Wolfram|Alpha

                  I have my copy of Windows 7 (er, professional?) on pre-order (mucho save-o) thanks to you guys here
