Happy Mole Day

Posted 21 Oct 2001 at 08:58 UTC by schoen Share This

Mole Day, in honor of Avogadro's Number, celebrates the number and Amedeo Avogadro, the man behind the legend. It's celebrated annually by chemists world-wide, and is coming up on Tuesday, October 23.

The current value of Avogadro's Number adopted by CODATA is available from NIST. October 23 was chosen because (in the U.S. locale) it is "10/23" (like the exponent in the Avogadro constant).

At the Mole Day party I'm attending, I'll propose a toast to Advogato along with Avogadro.

There where 3 moles, a papa mole, a mama mole, and a baby mole. They all lived on a farm. One moring the papa mole stuck his head out of the mole hole and said, Ooh i smell bacon" The mama mole wanted to smell it too, so she stuck her head out of the mole hole. "ooh, i smell eggs!" Baby mole wanted to smell this too, but there wasn't enough room for his head too fit out of the hole. "all i smell is mole-asses"

Sorry mom, I just had to do it! (to quote Dirty Walt, of Fishbone)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
