    Because this day only comes once every four years. That, and Darkening Episode 2 (see http://www.doomworld.com/darkening/) is supposed to be released today.

    Could be that it's something that only happens once every 400 years. Leap years are usually ignored on the century to make up for the fact that the Earth doesn't revolve around the sun in exactly 365 1/4 days. However, every fourth century, the leap year is left in as one last bit of fine-tuning. So: If year is divisible by four, it's a leap year. But if it's divisible by 100, it isn't. But if it's divisible by 400, then it is. Confusing?

    Ah, hello, Darkfang. Nice tie. <P>As you mortals have neglected to mention, it's also Linguica's birthday. It's also the third anniversary of the leap year confusion day incident back in 1997. And it's exactly two hundred days since AndrewB invented Bolognium. And it's been two weeks since Bill Clinton didn't have to sleep on the couch anymore. <P>Today is yesterday's tommorow. It's tuesday, the day of the moon. The third consecutive year that a doom project has been released on February 29. Exactly four years since the last leap day, and exactly four years since everyone killed the last guy who called it leap day. Today is the day mystican will clean the cat piss odour out of his carpet. And mewse will feed his fish. Today is the day Hellknight will not clean his room, just like every other day, and the day hopefully, the pic of the day will change again. <P>Also, Quasar will probably be awake most of today.

    Tip for AndrewB: Want to play QDOOM? Go buy a game called quake. Then again, I might be bias because I am on the Darken E2 squad. I'll let the wad speak for itself...

    I don't know about all of u guys here. But to me the only special thing about this day is the fact that it is supposed to be the release date for The Darkening E2. I don't give a damn if its a leap year or a normal year. That means jack!!!!! --> Laters. Eugene E. Sloupsky DOOM 4 EVER!!!

    What are you talking about? The last leap year to fall on a millenium was last millenium, 1000; it'll be a leap year every millenium...Darkening E2 is probably the biggest event today...

    leap years occur every fourth year, except every 100 years.. and again except this every 400 years. ;) This means, for example, that 1600 was a leap year while 1700 was not. hence the year 1000 wasn't a leap year, but 2000 is. easy :)
