    10th January? This is like nine months too late.

    10.10.10.

    ISO 8601 (YYYY-MM-DD)

    The one true way.

    That way at least makes sense, most significant number to the left like in the decimal and binary (for instance), much more than sticking the least significant in the middle and the two most at beginning and end.

    It makes the most sense. You’re going from most general to a specific day. It also means that if your dealing with a lot of dates (especially spanning years), you can sort them numerically and they will be in chronological order too. If you begin with the day of the month or the month then all of your Octobers will be together even though they’re from different years because they all start with 10. If you start with the day of the month then all of your 3rds will be together even if they’re from different months and years.

    That’s true, but you could always just sort them chronologically rather than numerically. Just saying…

    Actually, 100110 in binary equals 38.

    Makes sense to me.

    Actually it means nothing with out two additional bits.

    Not really – just the way it is, it could be octal 46, or base-4 212.

    Wrong. That would be like saying you need to write one hundred and twenty-three in the decimal system as 00000123. You don’t need to make it up to a byte unless you’re a computer and saving it to your memory. Humans can cope without binary being in bytes.
