I remember 12:34:56 7/8/90.  there will never be anything like it ever again.  for 81 years.

then again, I even more distinctly remember 1:23:45 6/7/89, because that was at the end of the school season, and the teacher made a point of it.

I remember 20:02 20-02 2002

(In Europe, the day comes before the month in the notation)

I'm used to the U.S. format having used it all my life.  However, the European notation (day-month-year) is more logical as it goes from smallest to largest unit where our month-day-year does not.

I tend to date my files in format YYYYMMDD, which makes sorting on a computer the simplest.  Fortunately, the people I work with are smart enough to be able to parse that!

For computer files, I do that, too.  It's quite nice for photo files.

Though, even at work, I'm often the only one that looks at them!  :banghead:

I use that date format too, Jake. Although I put dashes in it: 1991-08-09. That's actually an ISO standard date format (I want to say ISO 8601?). When I got promoted to manager at work they had a hell of a time figuring out what my deposit slips meant at first :spin:

Here in OK there was a kid born at 12:34 on that date, so they went ahead and "estimated" the seconds and put the timestamp down on the birth certificate as 12:34:56 07/08/09. (Most birth certificates don't include the seconds.)

^^ I write in that format, too. I usually write, for example, 20-Jul-09 or 20-Jul-2009.


Be well,

Bryant

Florida: The morning one or the evening one because I think most of us have work or school during the morning one :-D
