It's Friday 20th September 2013 today - my 44th wedding anniversary.
No one has ever left a comment on here and the page is dated 23 March 2009.
This evening, on the way home from work, I heard a fascinating 'Great Lives' (Radio 4) all about Ada Lovelace, the 19th century computer pioneer and was told Ada Lovelace Day is on the 25th October; yet on this page it is billed as being the 24th March.
Can you explain this anomaly please?


In 2009, Ada Lovelace day was on 24th March, the day after this article was published. see here:
