"Regarding the nerd stuff about the time and date reading 01:02:03 04/05/06 at 2 minutes and 3 seconds after 1 AM on Wednesday, I think they haven't gone far enough.. Depending on how you arrange and display time and date, then at 34 minutes and 56.7 seconds after noon on August 9, 2010, the time and date will be: 12:34:56.7 8/9/10."

Er, thanks.
