I'm turning 30 on Thursday, which is a nice round number, until I turn 0x30 "again" in 18 years.  It's got me very nostalgic.  When I was in my early 20s I always expected to look at 30 as a big deal, and this may seem fairly geek of me, but once you grok number bases, it's hard to get as excited about numbers that are round in one base. :)

I'm pretty happy with the way things in general are going, looking back on 2003, here's some highlights:

So, here's to turning 30, 0x1E, 36 (octal), and 0001-1110 all in the same day.

30 - let me see if I can think back that far! 30 was an awesome birthday for me. THe day before I had moved out of NYC and found myself living in a beautiful cottage in the middle of 1500 acres of gorgeous land in the Hudson Valley. I could not believe that I was living that dream already at the age of 30. You have already accomplished quite a lot at such a young age and should be VERY proud. Happy b-day, Scott!!

Hey Scott, Happy Birthday!

I liked your list, and I must (rather sheepishly) admit that I had no idea that Moses kept the Israelites informed via moblog. Fascinating! :)

I didn't realize we were so close in age. I turned 30 on Jan 4.
