Hi all,

 

Just noticed how many members had birthdays today

 

Cannot be statistically correct can it?

 

Or maybe a few porkies for convenience sake

 

Anyway

 

A Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year to One and All

Thanks for y'all being out there. I've learned quite a bit in just the small time I've been a Memeber and am looking forward to learning a lot more in the years to come.

. . . Just noticed how many members had birthdays today . . . Cannot be statistically correct can it? . . . 

 

I think it has something to do with March the 17th, Sleep the 18th?

 

They may all be Irish.   :o

 

Cheers!

I know theres several baby new years born on New Years day the start of every year. So I don't think thats odd at all.

Yep, I suspect that they want to reveal their (approximate) age, but not their actual date of birth. I would imagine that the year is accurate in most cases, just not the month and day.

 

Personally I put the first of the actual month that my birthday is in. Even though I go by my username rather than my real name here at Bleeping Computer, revealing my date of birth on a public internet forum seemed too much of a security risk. However small a risk, it seemed unnecessary, so I put the first of the month that my birthday is in, instead of the real day.

 

In any case, if the Queen can have two birthdays, I don't see why the rest of us can't do the same. :)
