Epic Epoch

OBTW (Oh, by the way),
November 17th has, for many years, been an important date to me, albeit for geeky/nerdy reasons. In case you missed it, yesterday was the anniversary (or annual delineation) of the reduced Julian date, modified Julian date (offset 12 hours), VMS (and Smithsonian) date, demarcating that day, night, nychthemeron back in 1858.
An epic epoch.
Ah, 1858. It was a good year.
