Assuming you're somewhere east of or including UTC-6, then it's now Leap Day.

No, 300,000,000 seconds ago would be 26 August 2002 and the oldest post on the forum seems to be from "16 Aug 02, 03:54", som we have just passed that anniversary a few days ago.

What species might Snake1 be? My sister has a five-month-old Elaphe guttata guttata, which just came off a ten-week-long hunger strike today at the temptation of a delicious live pinkie. The frozen/thawed ones weren't doing the trick any more. The next step would have been a pinkie pump, which is about as pleasant as you might imagine.

There are some photos of him here http://mersenneforum.org/showpost.ph...22&postcount=7 from when he was originally introduced. (Unless Mike's talking about a different Snake1 now.) Can you identify his species from the photos? I wouldn't be able to by the way, but in the first posting in that same thread Mike tells us the answer.
