If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  ISO 8601 provides for 20070709T091029 for
your compressed value below: one character more, and that "T" makes is easy
for a human to parse the figure (there are many more formats in 8601).  You
didn't provide seconds, nor a way to deal with fractions of a second; 8601


And, your computer today most likely supports that somewhere or another.


Now, if we only had a decimal-based (divisible only by 10)  number of
seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour, hours in a day, days in a month and
month in a year, we'd have something.

Dear OPENDTV friends,

Cheers for all!

To participate of this international forum is very pleasant.

Sometimes, I follow the messages from the opendtv archives.

I wish to suggest a simple way for organize the real sequence of messages: 

GMT/UTC numerator.


Today is 20070709,

(like Mark Schubin's numerator)

The local time im my contry is 7:16

The GMT/UTC time is 10:29

The composed message number is 200707091029 

What do  you think so?
