Sometimes the stars align or the planets do weird things, but this year it’s our current month of October that is causing cosmic vibrations.

Sometimes the stars align or the planets do weird things, but this year it’s our current month of October that is causing cosmic vibrations. For those of you set up to run lights-out production, this month could be a bonus for your bottom line. You see, there is a phenomenon occurring this month that only happens every 823 years. The last time was 1187.

Have you noticed that a little more free time available this month? Well, it’s not your imagination. In 2010 our freaky October has five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays—giving us a whole extra weekend more than average. If you couple that with the extra hour we get back from DST, it’s time to celebrate and take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity. Can you imagine how much more productive you could be this month if you ran light-out operations over the extra weekend? Making parts and money while watching football is very cool and a much better deal than the metalworkers had in 1187. After all, they had no choice about lights-out. Imagine trying to hammer iron on an anvil in the dark—ouch. (For more on successful lights-out production in 2K, read the articles here, here and here.)

By the way, enjoy this bonus now, because the next time it happens is 2833, and well, we’ll all be gone.
