Matt points out that tonight is a special, won't happen again in our lifetimes event:

Tonight, at 123 seconds past 1 a.m. the time will be 1:02:03 04/05/06. Now if you take into account that we're only using two digits for the year this event won't happen again for another 1000 years in the year 3006. If you happen to be out and about at that time of the night you way wish to find a 7/11 and purchase a lottery ticket :)

Now I have to decide if I am going to stay up or not. Gah!

Are you staying up? One time chance!

Two flaws with Matt's statement:

1) If you're using a two-digit year, then 2106 is also "06" - that means it won't happen for another 100 years, not 1000.

2) If you're not in the US, then the date format changes things. It might be "1:02:03 05/04/06" in your country, in which case you'd have to wait until May 4 to get to the special time.
