How do you write your dates?

I got a letter dated 4/3/05. I called the author and he mentioned something about March when the letter was written. Not April 3rd as I thought.

Swedish standard is day/month/year, i guess it goes for whole Europe :thumbsup:

Its day/month/year here as well.
It can get a bit confusing sometimes when dealing cross US-Europe :teeth:

I do month/day/year because that's how we do it in the US. I guess it goes hand in hand with us preferring to use April 27 over 27 April when we write out the months. ALthough I think day/month/year makes more sense when you are just doing numbers.

Them here Europeans like going from smallest to biggest: dd/mm/year. Despicable.

I personally prefer the mm/dd/year; it's easier to use. Especially when you have a list of several dozen dates, you just scroll your eyes down the months on the left instead of watching the middle intently.

2005/28/04 also works.

Edit: I had a teacher who used roman numerals for months. I found that to be rather neat.

Yeah you're right, it's a complex challenge reading dates over here :lol:
