    Oi! This country (Greenwich to be precise) is where the world's time is worked out from, so what we say goes. 5/4/06 is quite correct, thank you very much! ;)

    This reminds me of my little birthday celebration a few years ago. My birthday is Jan. 2nd. So in 2003, at 4:56 pm it became 1/2/3/4/5/6.

    I celebrated this great event with a pint. Naturally.

    A Unique Moment in Time

    I realize it's already happened across the pond, but I thought I would point out that in a few hours here, a very unique moment in time will occur. It will be April 4, 2006, and the time will be 2 minutes and 3 seconds past 1 o'clock in the morning. In other words, the exact date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06

    This will not occur again for another one thousand years.

    Enjoy! :cool:

    P.S. I also realize that due to the way the English represent their dates, the above could be construed as May 4, 2006 as well, since they use the dd/mm/yy format and we usually use the mm/dd/yy format. ;)
