Just a random silly thought.

 

In a couple of days it will be Wednesday, April 5, 2006.

 

At two minutes and three seconds past one in the morning the time and date will be:

 

01:02:03-04/05/06

 

All who still partake of alcoholic beverages should celebrate this once in a lifetime event by staying up late and drinking heavily!

Yes... a simple mathematic progression

1...2.......3.....4......5.......6

 

same as when we gets to 20/06/2006. which certain places will never arrive at due to the way the days are formatted there. *GRIN*

Prepared to be stunned-

 

it happens again next year and the following year and the one after that.

 

02.03.04 5/6/07

 

03.04.05 6/7/08

 

04.05.06 7/8/09

 

I can remember 06.06.06 6/6/66 - very spooky and 07.07.07 7/7/77

and the ones in the eighties and nineties

OK here is my beef with this. I get doing book work.

I find an old invoice that has somehow been misplaced.

 

It is written 04/05/06. All standards with that seem to have been erased totally.

 

Was that invoice from 2004, 2005, or 2006? And was it from April, May, or June. And even with computers there is no uniformity.

 

Now I'll shut up and go back to eating my maple syrup and Canadian bacon.

White Fox: I do AP/AR work, and I hate that too! Everyone writes their dates differently and it makes it impossible to find something in a file!

Do it the proper way; the English way!

 

eg 04/06/06 or 4/6/06 is the fourth of June, two thousand and six.

 

I could never get my head around 9/11 as i thought it happened on the eleventh of September not the ninth of November.

If you ask me, the correct way to format date and time is:

 

YYYY/MM/DD-hh:mm:ss.xx

 

Year on the left then Month, Day and time.

That way computers (and people for that matter) can sort dates a lot faster and easier. All you have to do is alphabetize.

 

Further, if you can program your computer to do the modular math you can calculate differences between two days/times simply by subtracting one from the other just like doing a math problem.

 

But, then, that's just the way *I* think.

I prefer a format similar to what this board uses in displaying the timestamp on posts: DD MMM YY or 05 APR 06. Not perfect, but usually less confusing.

Quite the contrary...you cant find decent unsmoked back bacon in canada. And I've looked!

 

And as for putting maple syrup with it....I'm aghast.

 

Only 2 things go with bacon....HP sauce, or if you really insist Tomato ketchup.

 

Still...different strokes for different folks i suppose.

And you can't find decent fatback north of the Mason-Dixon line, either!

Smithfield Bacon is the best of all.

 

That's Smithfield, VA and the hams that go with them.

 

Get at least one a year.
