    At exactly 06 minutes and 07 seconds after 5 o'clock on August 9th of this
    year it will be 05:06:07 08/09/10 ~ This will not happen again until the
    year 3010.

    How about 06:07:08 09/10/11, or are you saying the sequence must start
    with 05:06:07

    Actually it depends on how your calendar is set. In Europe it will be
    September 8th

    And, at that time, and in the year 3010, you will still be a HoopleHead.

    He said
    05:06:07 08/09/10 ~
    will not happen again until the year 3010.

    Read it.

    Only if you use mm/dd/yy (and only 2 digits for yy) for the datestamp
    format. Of course, sorting on that format means sorting by month
    instead of by day. Obviously a bad sorting format. I'm sure other
    nonsensical or historical formats could come up with another sequence.
    The logical format would be yy/mm/dd (to also match the hh:mm:ss format
    you used) for sorting. That means it won't be until 10/11/12 (Nov 12,
    2010) at either at 07:08:09 (hh:mm:ss) AM or PM when the sequence you
    infer will occur. As for not reoccuring until 3010, well, that
    obviously reoccurs every 1000 years when using only 2 digits for the
    year.

    Of course, in another thousand years, we'll still be using Windows XP
    for your post to be on-topic here assuming newsgroups are still around
    then, too. Uh huh.

    Thanks, but I read it and still wasn't sure if he meant the exact
    number sequence or a similar number sequence. He said "it" and "this"
    which could mean "this exact number system" or it could mean "a number
    sequence such as this."

    Why wouldn't the same date and time in 2110 produce the same result?

    Indeed it will. But it will still be wrong. Ignoring the century,
    this serial phenomenon will happen on 2010-09-08, 07:06:05; that is,
    September 8, 7am.
    If we don't ignore the century, the phenomenon falls on 2019-18-17,
    16:15:14, that is, June 17, 2020, 4pm. :)

    When are you going to quit making an ass of yourself. You're destroying your
    already idiotic personality.
    You better go back to your dorm room and lock yourself in.
