Yes it will - exactly 30 days later when the rest of the world recognises the same sequence - 07/08/09 to most of us is 7 August 2009.

You freak, I was hanging onto this little piece of geekdom and WAITING until it was releveant to post it.

Technically the last one would be 08:09:10 11/12/13 so we get another 4 years of geeky number date play.

And... this date sequence will happen again... in 2109, 2209, 2309... etc. None of us will be around to see it though smiling

How about the opposite? 16:15:14 13/12/11 - 15 minutes and 14 seconds past 4pm on the 13th of December 2011 (and all of the other ones with lower numbers) - and yes I know the highest in the us would have to be 15:14:13 12/11/10.

The person who made this image obviously hasn't thought about it much.

Or maybe they have, which would be even sadder.

But, as was said above, 04:05:06 07/08/09 will indeed be Friday, 7th of August, 2009 (and 2109 and 2209 and ..) and not the 8th of July as the whacky Americanites would have us believe.

I have been told, but not had a chance to verify it, that US passports have DoB and expiry dates in DD/MM/YYYY format - about the only place they have had to conform to international standards. Maybe some of you can confirm or refute this.

Not sure about that, though it'd make sense since pretty much the rest of the world use dd/mm/yyyy

It's very simple.

The 7th day of the 8th month of the 2009th year = 7/8/2009

You don't say the 8th month of the 7th day of the 2009th year = 08/07/09

Silly monkeys.

How about the 7th month 'and' the 8th day of 2009th year.

US passports use "23 MAR 2017", the dis-ambiguity of which appeals to my military side, but the computer geek in me prefers "YYMMDD", most significant to least, just like numbers, which means they sort correctly without depending on the system recognizing them as dates.

Agreed with Frosted... also a coder here and I always like decreasing order by significance. Also a Canuck too and I never understood why me neighbours to the south used MM/DD/YY. It makes perfect sense to me to sort the items in either in increasing or decreasing order.

In spoken word, "July the fourth"is just as acceaptable as "the fourth of July".
But I can't understand not having a standardised notation.

Standardized notation, metric system, what's next standardized language? Maybe the world should speak English and nothing else. Let's start with these damned Mexicans.
