Four and twenty blackbirds, baked in a pie.... As for dates, I was raised using the month/day/year system, but later I decided that it was crazy, so I went day/month/year. It is actually quite useful, because it mixes text and numerals, making it easy to read. Say I want to specify time and day: 13:30 Tue 17 Dec 2002 It's easier to read than any other method I know. Once you get used to 24-hour time. ---- Everyone's different, except me. --Noktakanto
