  1. Congrats!!! I’ve discovered this place not long ago, and I love it! Greetings from Spain!

  2. You do know that a millicentury would be one one thousandth of a century? Meaning that 20 millicenturies would be 0.2 years, or approximately 73 days.

    The word you’re looking for is “millimillenium” or “centicentury”. Either will work.

    1. I don’t think that I understand your math.

      1 century = 100 years
      1 millicentury = 100 years/1000 = 0.1 years
      20 millicenturies = 20*0.1 year = 2 years.

      A millimillenium or centicentury are both equal to one year– and this blog post was for our 2nd anniversary, not our 20th.

      1. My math? It’s quite simple.

        My staying up way too late = My making foolish error while posting afterwards

        You are quite right. 20 millicenturies would be 2 years. Sorry about that.
