in thread Efficient coupling/decoupling of serialized data

++ the serial
Just as long as there are no more than 99 versions in a day.

/prakash

Update: Of course, your numbering scheme itself breaks if there are more than 99 versions, so my comment above is not really valid.

    Nothing terrible happens if there are, it just rolls to the next day. 2002010199 becomes 2002010200. The algorithm still works - it's just the humans that get nervous about having a serial number of 2002010200 on Jan 1, 2002.
