I assume most of you already use this, or rather those of you who use Entourage and/or iCal, but don't forget to subscribe to the Typophile Calendar: http://www.icalx.com/public/typophile/Typophile

Shu's picture

March 15, 1979.

That's the "Ides of March" for those who love your ancient Roman history. Another one of the small reasons why I am so crazy. Beware.

The International Day of Protest, of course - June 18.
Specifically, 1968. Hours after Cassandre took his life.

twin snakes here: june 5, 1977

Nicole Dotin's picture

Mmm... mine is June 18th as well.
International Day of Protest makes a lot of sense to (for) me.

Geminis make life worth living. Especially the ones who are Monkeys in the Chinese horoscope... ;-)

Tiff, do you want to re-collect dates that are already on the calendar? I am assuming that you are just building off the current collection.

I would also like to volunteer to help maintain the calendar, should the need arise.

Miss Tiffany's picture

yes, Grant, I think we'll just add to the current calendar. there are some mistakes/errors/problems on it and I've told Jared about our willingness to help. if anyone has subscribed the typophile calendar and notices errors please point those out too.

dezcom's picture

We have the same birthday! Well, give or take a few decades. I really like the "National Nothing Day" thing--now I feel special too.


Miss Tiffany's picture

I have to agree with Shu, Pisces Rule!!!!

Miss Tiffany's picture

I'd be willing to bet that Eric Gill and Giambattista Bodoni would also agree with us.

"It’s very possible I might be the youngest on here: 8/31/84"

Gah. I wear running shoes and have operational computers older than some of you kids...

"Running shoes..."

Running shoes? You got Running shoes? I've got sneakers (as in U.S. Keds high-tops with a rubber circle on the ankle bone). I've got stuff in my refrigerater older than you :-)


timotheus's picture

FWIW, mine is November 13 (as in Friday the), 1970.

hrant's picture

Ine! :-) I'm not surprised, considering your two-faced font...


Grant Hutchinson's picture

Running shoes are Canadian. Sneakers are US o' A.

All of my "running shoes" (including the 25-year old ones) are Converse Chuck Taylor's.

Keds can only dream of being Chucks when they grow up.

As for your refrigerator, my condolences.

"Keds can only dream of being Chucks when they grow up"

Sorry Grant, only the rich kids got Converse in my neighborhood and their wern't any :-)

Chris, we must celebrate the celebration of not celebrating anything on National Nothing Day.


dezcom's picture

"...celebrate the celebration of not celebrating anything on National Nothing Day."

That's a deal! Mark it on your calendar :-)


Norbert Florendo's picture

First born in NYC on Fathers Day, June 15, 1947.
My 15 minutes of fame came when I was announced on WNYE and it's been downhill ever since.

Yes, I'm old, but I'm back from vacation!

December 13th, 1977

Norbert has me beat by a little. ;)

Norbert Florendo's picture

I have copies of U&lc older than you are.

Yes, I'm old, but I'm back in style!

James Grieshaber's picture

Hey, I share my birthday with Peter Saville (October 9). But mine is in ’67.

Norbert Florendo's picture

Does anyone have an interesting progression of their birthdate, like January, 23, 1945 (1-23-45) or March 21, 1954 (54.3.21)?

dezcom's picture

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon (Carnegie Tech at the time) on 6-6-66 and have had the Devil to pay ever since :-)


hrant's picture

My index in the MyFonts database is 666.
Laurence swears it was a coincidence. Blasphemy.

Sorry to disappoint you bud, but I might be even younger than you. ;) December 4th 1985.

Grant Hutchinson's picture

Hey Tiff... as long as you're compiling dates, I noticed that David Carson's birthday (today) is in the calendar as a timed event, rather than a 'all-day' event. Just something to tidy up while you're under the hood.

Miss Tiffany's picture

Yeah. I noticed that also, Grant. I'm still waiting for the keys though.

Matthew Carter's is kerflunky as well (October 2nd).
