You realize, of course, that even in Canada, it's officially 03/12/04.

I'd think the most logical arrangement is YEAR-MONTH-DAY, with the smallest, most changeable interval on the right, as is usual (see clock time and numbers in general).

Obviously, I didn't :oops: . Around the office, we standardized to the MM/DD/YY format.

Bringing to mind another quote:
"...And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be
A map they could all understand.
“What’s the good of Mercator’s North Poles and Equators,
Tropics, Zones, and Meridian Lines?”
So the Bellman would cry: and the crew would reply
“They are merely conventional signs!..."
The Hunting of the Snark---Lewis Carroll

Complete agreement here: 20041207 for today, 20041203 for the referenced date. What's really nice is, computer-wise, that date structure is self-sorting.

Actually, that date was 38324, at least in unformated Microsoft Excel, the true international standard. :wink:

Then there's always 6AM on June 6th = 666. Which means of course that we got a whole bunch of anti-christs running around loose, all separated by one year of age. If it means anything, that is...

BTW, I've heard a number of fundamentalist preachers condemn numerology. Pot calling kettle! Never underestimate the power of the Schwarz!

Of course, in legalese it takes a full page folio (that will be £120.00 please Mr Frog) just to write the date. :evil:

While we're vaguely on the subject, do you think we should say two-thousand and four, twenty-oh-four, or even twenty-aught-four?

Yep, we even hed somethin' called "snow" back then, before it got so warm. Ah kin remember walkin' one hundred feet thru a half-inch, not a quarter mind you, but a whole half-inch jes' t' git t' the mailbox.
