According to the wikipedia, today is Java's birthday (Java (programming language)). I think it is even old enough to drive now (in Missouri).

So, Happy Birthday to the language that helped me become a father.

Where do you see that its birthday is 23 May? I don't see that anywhere in the article. According to Java version history JDK 1.0 was released on January 23, 1996.

That reminds me that it's my nephew's 21st birthday today...
