Yes, I got that email too. It wrongly claimed that this event would NEVER happen again, when infact 21:12 21/12 2112 will occur in the future ... maybe not in our lifetime though :)

It also did not explicitely specify that each component had to be symmetrical, that was at best only implied ... hence our broader interpretation of the problem.

Thanks for the linkage.

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
[ambrus]: So now when I choose what motherboard to buy for my new home computer, I have one more specific property to guide me. Useful, because there's so many different boards to choose from.
