NERD HOLIDAYS!

Happy Nicola Tesla's Birthday!

Go play with electricity! But be careful, it bites.

In addition, we got a NERD HOLIDAY TWOFER...

FRIDAY will be Mr. Wizard's Birthday!

Honor SCIENCE! Or blow some shit up!

I've lost my JUNE NERD HOLIDAY, since it was Systems Administrator Appreciation Day, but either I was confused or they moved it, cuz it's celebrated on the last Friday in July.

And I don't got one for August neither. *sad face*

There's always Star Wars Day: May the Fourth be with you. Bwahaha.
(I still like Tesla/Mr. Wizard Day, but I have personal reasons for that one....)

What's the difference between July 31st and April 3rd (besides the mathematical solution)?

I thought the Cheese Weasel left cheese for Sys Admins.
