At the stroke of Midnight on New Year's Day, I write 1/1/<new year> as many times as necessary so I won't write the wrong date. Has worked fine for the last couple of years.
You know what would be cool, is that the New Year's after next, we can write: 1/1/11. That would be fun to write many times.
1|1|11 - aren't we glad we use slashes rather than vertical bars.
haha...and some prefer dashes
Vertical bars should be the standard.
1/1/11 = .0909090909090909090909
1-1-11 = -11
1|1|11 = The date almost 13 months from now.
