I don't see any palindrome there.

Oh, ISO format: 1221-12-21. Got it.
Yes, unspeakable one.
I was using US date format: 12-21-1221

Your evil lair must not be in the US ?

I think one can still conclude middle-endian date formats are awful regardless of where one is located.

I actually prefer the ISO format (which I doubt is used in any country by "normal" people) because it sorts easily.

This is all very cute, but what has it to do with Science? Wouldn't it fit better as a subtopic in the Happy Pi Day thread in lounge?

AIUI, it is used almost everywhere except in the North American colonies.

My personal obsession, Algol 68, need not be based on English vocabulary or the US-ASCII character set. Russian/Cyrillic implementations exist. I am now wondering whether A68 is flexible enough to encompass classical Chinese.

It is amazing. Thank you for sharing that.
It is notable that the clip can be computer colorized and turned to stereoscopic-3D, though the latter is currently not an off-the-shelf process for the true version.
It is inevitable that the market for old movies enhancement is in the near future.

Very nice! But the soundtrack is not realistic (whistling not sync, and no puff-puff from the brakes, etc), it seems like the AI doesn't really know how old steam engines ran, or braked.
