Default I registered in the future...

Hi!

I just checked out my own preferences page, and noticed that my registration date at diyaudio is going to be the first of September this year

This is something I always wanted to do: Living in the future! Learn about my future wife (errr make that girlfriend... ), about my career opportunities, about the Lotto numbers...


Oh, I just noticed... maybe it's just an error in the message board scripts... no future for me...

That just about ruined my evening! Going drown my sorrows now...




G' night...


Arndt

I think the forums uses another date format:
MM/D/YYYY instead of what we are used to: D/MM/YYYY

You swapped the month and the day.

Default It's odd....

Australia and the rest of the world mostly use day-month-year (DDMMYY).

So why does the forum use the US format?

Must be US-software or settings.

I have seen some Japanese stuff that uses YYYYMMDD. e.g 2003/05/17 19:46:27 including time. MSB to LSB just like ordinary numbers. Much better idea I think.

YYMMDD is the standard Japanese format for western dates.

Cheers,

Yes it's US software .. I was recently thinking of given each user the option to change to the Australian format .... maybe if I get some time this week I might do it.

It's just more evidence of the monolithic, imperilistic American's domination of the world. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

Thats aggravating, when you preview the post the attachment gets cleared. I guess this world domination thing is a little more complicated than it looks.
