U.S. military services use the day/month/year format as well. That means that someone in a military reserve branch who is doing his civilian job this week but has a reserve obligation a month from now can experience it twice.

call me a pedant but don't the Japanese in their rigorous efficiency put the Year first. And in strict mathematical terms (if you are a programmer it makes sense) shouldn't the most significant digit be the leftmost character? Unless your lexicon runs widdershins.

E.g. 2006/05/04 01:23 - not as prosaic I admit and hour 45 was impossible on the third of Feb 2001, but for all the other years, days, hours, minutes, seconds (not forgetting the decimal point) - what could be neater? Simple as 123 if you ask me.

I agree with Mr Red that the sequence year-month-day-hour-minute-second makes a lot of sense, since it puts the largest units farthest to the left, the same way we do with pounds, shillings, and pence; gallons and quarts; or any other kind of measurement I know of.

In fact, I use a computer program that formats date and time exactly that way so that records can be easily sorted into chronological order according to when they were generated.

I also recall 2 mins past 8 on 20th Feb 2002,a.k.a.

20.02/20.02/2002.

I've always been used to writing my birth date as 17th July 1945. I see say, 8.25 on 17.7.06, starting with smallest and finishing with year as fine and natural. Personally.

FWIW

You may be surprised that - dates in a spreadsheet will sort numerically despite the format. The format is just a neat presentation of the underlying number - the number of days since Jan1 AD100. Convert one cell to number with a few decimal places and you will be amazed. - if it doesn't change see below. Micro$oft have a way of doing things for you when you didn't want it to, like converting dates into the above format.

If your dates are pure text they will sort according to the ASCII number of the character in the first position - then according to subsequent positions etc.

1 is followed by 10,11,12 then 2,3,4,5,6 etc unless you insist on 01,02,03 etc in all positions.

Since the Universe started on January 1, 1970, I simply use as a date the number of seconds that have elapsed since then, usually in hexadecimal. Of course, the Universe will end on January 18, 2038.

You could guess by looking back historically: what happened on 6th June 1006, or better still 606AD (06:06:06 06-06-0606)?

You may have to adjust for the change from Julian to Gregorian, but I think that's only a few days, and stuff wasn't often recorded to the day back then.

Random netsearch quotes:

"Chien-chih Seng-ts'an Third Zen Patriarch (606AD)"
"..the organizational entity that calls itself the Catholic Church started in 606AD.."
"..more Patriarchs were added in the East, but after the same order and design of Constantinople in 606AD.."
"Jianzhi Sengcan, the Third Ancestor [died 606AD]"
"Birth of astronomer Aryabhatta 606 AD"
"606 AD - Aedh, son of Colgan, chief of Oirghialla and of all the Airtheara, died on his pilgrimage, at Cluain Mic Nois (Clonmacnoise)"
"The first known independent Bengal king was Shashanka (circa 606 AD)."
"the (Chinese) written exam system of civil service became established in 606 ad"
"the death of Prabahakar Vardhan in 606 AD"
"The City (Cork) was founded on a monastic settlement associated with St. Finbarr in 606 AD"
"The Flavigny abbey , erected in the 7th century ( some say 606 AD ) took every 11th basket at harvest time..."

Can't guarantee that any of these happened on June 6th, at just after 6 in the morning, but it looks pretty likely, doesn't it?

On the 30th April 1006 AD Chinese astronomers saw what we now know to have been the biggest Supernova ever seen by Human eyes.
This would have been seen on the 6th June, as it remained visible for over a year.

Have you ever noticed that cookies they want to last the longest are set to expire in 2036? I assume that's significant.



BTW...in a clock/calendar program I have, it is possible to calculate the elapsed time, down to seconds) since Dec 15, 1752, when the calendar changed....or the time until a date in the future...you have warranties that will expire and want to keep track? Want to know how many minutes you have lived? Find out instantly!
