DVD Talk Newsletter wrong date

I just got the latest DVD Talk e-mail newsletter in my inbox. But it was way at the end, because it is dated Wed., January 8, 2001. I only noticed it because yahoo mail said I had one unread e-mail but I didn't see it on the top of the list.

More head-scratching, January 8, 2001 was not a Wednesday. It was a Monday.

Yeah, that was a snafu on my part. The newsletter is supposed to go out on Tuesday mornings, and I write it up on Monday. When I uploaded it and tested it, I apparently put the date for the mailing as 080801 instead on 010808. The mail program sent it out immediately, and by the time I noticed it was too late. Sorry guys!

You need to change the date settings to "European."

Upon further review, mine did say Aug 8, 2001, not January 8, 2001. I don't know why I read it as January before. Thanks for the clarification.
