suggestion: let's use international date format YYYY-MM-DD
I just noticed that the date format of the sticky announcements at the top of the forums is in this format
(below is a snippet from ):

Announcements    Last Post
Announcement    LDraw Parts Tracker now uses LDView    09/03/2011 07:05PM
Announcement    The final hurdle for Non-CA parts    08/26/2011 09:15PM
Announcement    Scott Wardlaw appointed as LDraw Colormaster    08/18/2011 03:36PM
Announcement    2011/2012 Steering Committee: Election Results    08/01/2011 08:50AM
Announcement    LDraw All-In-One-Installer 2011-01 Now Available    07/29/2011 04:41PM

Note the date format MM/DD/YYYY.

I would much better like to use the new international date format YYYY-MM-DD
which has many advantages, among them:
- cannot be misunderstood when coming from different cultures of DD.MM.YYYY, DD/MM/YYYY, MM/DD/YYYY
- can easily be sorted
- is an ISO standard
- people start using it more and more widespread, especially in cross-cultural international companies
