Right now @@DATE@@ on
says 24122012 which looks strange for most people[1].  I recall
wondering why it is so several times but never bothered to change it.

It's very unlikely any harm could be done if @@DATE@@ was changed to a
more common format.


[1] for Germans the format is what you'd use when writing down the
    current date.  I don't recall writing that code, though.
