"Black and White and Read All Over"

I have no idea why the 57th anniversary of the bar code is such a big deal, but when even Google changes its logo in honor of the observance, then we must pay heed.

I suspect that this site - it allows you to generate your own bar code - got swamped today. I couldn't resist.



Is it accurate? Who knows? It's supposed to be a Code 128B version. And, yet again, I have no practical knowledge of what it means.

I found it interesting that at least one site that offers a "free or donation-requested" bar code font had disabled the free option for the day. I guess they subscribe to the "make hay while the sun shines" business philosophy.
