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

    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.
