Now, did you realise SAS day 20,000 (4Oct2014) is the anniversary of the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957?
And SAS day 10,000 (19May 1987) is the anniverary of the launch, in 1971, also by the USSR, of Mars 2 - the first man-made probe to reach the surface of Mars.
So, by choosing 1Jan1960 as day zero, were the SAS founding fathers subtly celebrating the USSR's achievements in the space race?
Just a thought.

How about 10/11/12 (or was it 11/10/12) ... depends where you are ... Aaaaaarg!
Seriously, the only date format that I really like to see is ISO 8601, being the only universal date format. (2012-10-11)
