    Must be a very old standard...  I have never seen it used in college, in old
    textbooks, or on ships, even by my oldest fellow mates and captains.  Our
    standard notation was DDMMYYYY.

    Silicon Sea date notation is MMDDYYYY because the program I use to calculate
    uses and display's it in this manner. This is the "old(?)" European standard
    nautical method. Since Silicon Sea is reaching near the end of the voyage in
    a few more legs I am reluctant to change it at this point.
