@ Georacer ,You transposed your numbers 5/11/12..should have been 11/5/12....

you see that I read your post,a loyal viewer.
AAC is an English talking site, but no restriction is imposed on the measurements standards. I take advantage of it and try to promote my SI agenda.

That's one thing I don't get.

Surely the logical thing to do is list the numbers from shortest time to longest?

Then again, I don't get alot. :D

I always thought most european countries use the day/month/year sequence.

Also the U.S. Military uses the year/month/day format.

Once I figure out it's a date, that's is what matters. I also expect some countries to use the 24 hour time format.

It's just part of life.

I use my own format, due to computers. YYMMDD, it self sorts in a list of files in folder. Y2K was the exception, but that has been a while, and I don't expect to be here for the next millennium.

I use big-endian, as in 2012-11-12 15:06:59

Sometimes I go with Long Now to make a statement: 02012-11-12

Yes, only Long Now format can be used to fully describe the dates on the "In the year 2525" song. Thus it must be useful.

Numbers (decimal, hex, binary, etc.) flow from high to low, left to right.

I thought I was the only one who remembered this song (and my dad)! I can try, but a recent karaoke party has shown that I rightly pursued the EE direction, instead of a singing one.

Thanks, I suppose I could have worked it out...

Those Americans like to stay up late, or are there lots of Indians with nothing to do in the afternoon
