    You meant to say DD/MM/YYYY, right? Looking at the previous two legs,
    it appears that is the normal convention aboard Silicon Sea. As for
    leaving it unchanged, no problem, I can cope. But this certainly
    points out how confusing numeric dates can be!
    The U.S. military (or the Air Force, at least) for umpteen years used
    dates like 13 Nov 02. Around the Y2K scare it became common to use all
    four digits in the dates. But in recent years the ISO style has made
    inroads. Before I retired in 2000, it was mandatory in personnel
    performance appraisal forms and aircraft maintenance documents.
