Unless you are in the UK when you will need to wait till the 4th May.

Those silly yanks put the day of the month in the wrong place - should be day month year, not month day year.

But they always did do things funny.

This "silly yank" here agrees with you. Haven't fully switched to the metric system yet either. We will one day..............

I agree, M/D/Y is strange, the least significant number is in the middle. what would actually make more sense is Y/M/D. Would make sorting by date much easier.

as a techie/programmer/databasey kinda guy, i only ever use
ccyy-mm-dd (& if needed hh:mi:ss)

which is a close as i can get to ANSI standard whilst using punctuation to make it readable by a human bean.

using different formats is a right pain to code, especially when you're running it through a cobol program which is looking at trillions of iterations(passes thru the code). :shock:

once you've been through an exercise of making a 10k line program like this more efficient you tend to change your ways a little.

...and dont even get me started on people using 2 digit years instead of 4 GRRRRrrrrr
but it did keep me employed for a couple of years modifying programs to be Y2K compliant.

apologies to any non techies reading this.
