LOL.  Well, I *really* wanted to write 20090921T213000-0400 (or even 
2009-09-21 21:30 -04:00), but I figured if I wanted anyone to actually 
watch it, I should try to be more readable.  Though admittedly this 
crowd would probably mostly get it.  :-)

I love ISO-8601, it actually sorts dates/times correctly, it's 
unambiguous, it slices, it dices, it's better than a Ronco Salad Shooter!
