Bitcoinica keeps giving me the * when trying to buy... sure sign of a bull market.

****************************************************************************************

Hey what exactly does that asterisk mean?  That bull's eye is winking at my long position too; is that good?  :-D

Seriously though, what does it mean?

What's funny is that a lot of people haven't been paying attention to bitcoin. The people that looked last week saw $3, and the next time they're going to look it's going to be $6 and be like WTF?!.  Cheesy

12-18-11: $3
12-25-11: $4.2? (too lazy to look at charts)
1-1-12: $5.4 right now
1-8-12: $6.6?

WTF? As if your 'guess the price on (date format that only makes sense in the USA)' wasn't bad enough , now you've gone back to mid last century and decided 2-digit years are a good idea again?
You Date-format troll!


12-18-11 clearly means 2012-11-18
and 12-25-11 is obviously 2012-11-25


wtf? dumbass? you're from the future?


yes dumbass, i have all the charts for 2012 - 2043 sitting here on my desk.
problem?

I agree.

Let's stick to the European format. This forum is a bit too US centered. So much for promoting Bitcoin internationally.

If only some international standards organization existed that could help us come up with an unambiguous date format...

So the date today is 2012-01-02. It's not American date format or European date format. It does make the most sense. Think of how we write time: hour, minute, second. Dates should be the same way, biggest to smallest: Year, month, day.

Plus, you can easily use lexicographic sort which will work fine on these dates. Anything else is very problematic.

This is how we write the date here in Japan. (YYYY/MM/DD)

Chinese does it too.

I'm fully in favor of most-significant-time-unit-first, and propose we start right now on 2012-01-02.

I can handle that. Just bear with some of us stupid Americans. Old habits are hard to break. ;p  Generally if I am communicating to someone about an important matter I make sure the date is unmistakable.
I.e., The 2012th year of our Lord, in the holy month of Janurary, on the 2nd day of his blessings. I kid, I kid
I.e., 2nd of Jan. of 2012    would be a proper date format on letter heads here in the U.S.  I do like having a more reconized standard when abbreviated though..

cheers

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Hey, at least you Americans use a consistent system. Here, we have both YYYY-MM-DD and DD/MM/YYYY systems in common use: that's big endian and little endian. Then, there is "lazy format" when you use two-digit years. Here's a question for you: guess the date this represents:

The only countries to use the mixed date format, (MM/DD/YYYY), are: United States, Belize, Micronesia, Palau, and the Philippines.  Every other nation uses either big or little endian dates, not mixed endian which quite frankly make no logical sense.  In my programming projects I'm forced to use DD/MMM/YYYY format dates so there is absolutely no ambiguity (is 6/2/2012 a day in June or February?  Depends on whether an American is reading it or not), but that makes life difficult for people who do not understand English.

Coincidently, the only countries left in the world still using Fahrenheit as the official measure of temperature are: United States, Cayman Islands, and Belize.

Maybe the USA will convert, one day...
