August 08, 2008


Apropos of absolutely nothing Adobe-related, happy 08-08-08!  I’m especially into the date as I was born at 10:08 on this day 33 years ago.  I celebrated my birthday on 8-8-88 watching the first Chicago Cubs night game on TV.  (It being the Cubbies, they got rained out.)  I’m told the series of 8’s is auspicious, so I wish you happiness, good fortune, and delightful pixel-wrangling.  And with that, I’m closing the computer to have some good times with the family here in Illinois.

    Happy 8.8.8 and Happy Birthday to you! If you’ve got a Flickr account, they’re celebrating 8.8.8 too …

    Happy Birthday, John. Mine was on the 8th, but 2 months earlier. There is a saying that people born on the 8th generally hold important positions. Let’s hope that’s true.

    Happy Birthday! And congratulations on your Hall of Fame Award!

    Hey John,
    Just got back from a backyard cookout for a friend with the same birthday. 0808. (She was born a few more than 33 years ago!)
    As it said in the invitation to her party, “Eight’s the best number.”
    Enjoy the time with your family.
    All the best,

    Hey, Happy B-Day, John!! And congratulations for the Hall of Fame. Indeed, it’s a nice number for a birth date. I went to Wikipedia, just out of curiosity, and found some interesting people who were born on the same day.
    Among others, are Emiliano Zapata (Mexican revolutionary), Dino De Laurentiis (Italian film producer), Dustin Hoffman (American actor), The Edge (U2 guitarist)…
    You’re in good company ;)
