Actually... It's from April 5th to 6th that the site was closed down due to server issues. Hence the 4/5/2013-4/6/2013 date and timestamp.


The fact is that outside the U.S. the notation 4-5-2013 and 4-6-2013 means 4 of May 2013 and 4 of June 2013 so that was what I saw the first time I read the title. ;)

Most of the world uses either DD.MM.YYYY ore ISO 8601 with YYYYMMDD for date.

Well, I was born/raised in the US so I'm going to use the notation >I< am used to it's not my fault that they haven't standardized it.

It's not wrong.. And from what I have seen of older letters/etc that have dates, this has been our format since the 1700's..
