Today’s date without dots is 11011.

A binary number, that much I recognise (Thank you, Star Trek: The Next Generation).

2716

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
