May 3, 2006
For those of you who put the day of the month in front of the month (the European method of designating days of the month), shortly after 1 AM tonight the time/date will be 01:02:03 04.05.06.
Is this significant? I don’t know. All I know is that last month, on the 5th of April, I missed the North American time/date designation of 01:02:03 04.05.06 so I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to mention it to my European friends.
