January 10th through 19th 2011. February 10th through 19th 2012............ June 10th through 19th this year. July 10th through 19th next year, and so on until 2019. Ten days per year for nine years: 90 days per century. That is if you write the date as a single digit for the month and the last two digits for the year. Using different formats for the dates you get different numbers of palindrome dates per year and per century.

It is actually quite an interesting topic for a computer programming exercise.

You never know what will come out of "pointless" things until you try them. I have just finished a little program to find each 'narcissistic number', a number that is the sum of its own digits each raised to the power of the number of digits. The first few are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 153, 370, 371, 407. It ran a little slowly at first, and I had in an interesting time optimising it.

That was a waste of time. Are you just using up broadspan?

@Charlie4U,
yes, I have way too much broadspan and this is a good way to use it up. (Idiot)

What is "broadspan"? Not a word I've seen before.

@Tes yeux noirs,
He's trying to say "broadband". As in internet service capacity.

What is wasted by sending nonsense or useless data is bandwidth.
