OK, that gets us to 3/1 but where does the '4' come from?  If you want 
to count 4am, then you have to ignore the leading zero, even allowing 
for not using leading zeros in the day and month that doesn't feel quite 

At least with the American version you can have 3/14 15:00 before the 
sequence breaks down...  Or, 3/14 20:00 if you decide to round up the 
third decimal place.

I guess you could go to 3/1/4159 but that's a bit of a wait to have a pie.
