        I vote for March 2nd, 2001!  I would hope that your systems "date
format"
        would be handling this issue.  (i.e.: should something typed in be
seen as
        dd/mm/yy or mm/dd/yy or other...)

        To me, 03/02/01 represents 3rd Feb 2001 ... this one has been going
on a
        long time - it's not just a Y2K issue!

        I was expecting a scare in the news about y2k fears next year, but
haven't
        noticed anything.

        Maybe because of the presidential mess, everyone is watching
something
        else!

        During year 2000, it was implicit in every date which digits
represented
        the
        year.

        01/02/00 was obviously January 2, 2000.

        00/06/03 was obviously June 3, 2000.


        Next year it will not be so obvious!

        What is 03/02/01?  March 2nd, 2001?   Or February 1st, 2003???

        What is 01/02/01?  January 2, 2001?    Or February 1st, 2001???

        When a clerk keys in an order date or ship date (or blood expiration
        date!!), I hope they know where the year should go!!!


        Just something to ponder!!!

        Has anyone seen this in the press???
