A very important question
26 Aug 2001
Why do you use the X## date scheme?
I want to know why indy media uses the X## scheme. For instance, A16. You all may immediatly think oh thats April 16th. Are you sure though? Are you positive I dont mean August 16th? It does not make any sense to me. the same goes for the may/march and june/july months too. If you can't effectivly communicate dates, I can only imagine what will happen if you start trying to engage real people in conversations.

If anyone has a good reason for this, that isn't "it's hip, it's cool, it's edgy, it's new, etc" please email me!
