A Truly "Odd" Day
« on: May 07, 2009, 12:29:15 PM »
Today is a truly odd day. May 7th, 2009, or 5-7-9. There will be only six days this century where the date is consecutive odd numbers. The last will be November 13, 2015.

I listen to NPR waaaaay too much.  :-[

The odd thing to us Brits about all this Cos is the way you guys on the other side of the pond put the month ahead of the day.  :o

To us 5/7/9 will be 5th July 2009, and the 11/13/15 can never happen.  :P

Try setting up a computer system in Canada.  Our 'official' date is d/m/y, like the Brits, but all our software is American, so defaults to m/d/y.

One of my top ten problems!
