Here's a good question:
Given the number of different ways of representing date and time, how many times are there that the digits in the date/time string will be consecutive in either increasing or decreasing order?
7 seconds past 5.06 AM on Jan 2nd, 304 AD. One possibiity?
or 7 seconds past 5.06 AM on Feb 2, 304 AD (If date is written in DD/MM/YYYY format)..
Character is who you are when no one is looking.
And I missed it! Well done siva, a truly amazing date/time!

May the 4th be with you.
Although that particular string won't happen for another 100 years, we will have 02:03:04 05/06/07 next year.
Americans will get it sooner than Brits.
Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
Please, not the star wars may the 4th one. My applied maths (mechanics) teacher is always telling use to 'Use the force'
(Stardust, if people chatter too much in that class, say "Too much Torque (talk) applied, not enough Work done!")
