Re: Canadian cheques...

Because I'm afraid, that the clerk, who will use it, doesn't know abut ISO or any standards at all...

So what? No reasonable person would be confused by an ISO date, especially in the US, where month already precedes the date in the numeric notations, and either way, you can't make a mistake which number is the year when you use 4 digit years.

And I would not buy any arguments that banks could possibly afford to hire complete idiots as staff, so, I don't see any problem with using ISO8601 when drawing a free-form cheque in the US. I never had a problem even in a small town local bank in North Carolina.

Today is a special date, my friend Constantine, even if not in ISO.

As you know, 12/12/12 and we will have to wait 88 years for 01/01/01.

I won't be alive then; you conceivably might be.

So I raise a toast to you.

We need a new ISO standard so we can experience the lucky date 13/13/13.

Since we should use the full year i think that we should wait with the celebration till 11111/11/11. Start stocking up champagne.
