Can that be done with a simple fix.
I am not sure and it's no big deal but, it's much easier to read the deadlines when they are in Month/Day/Year format than Day/Month/Year.
Maybe it just me.

For your side of the pond; it would confuse the hell out of people from this side. If we really want to be considerate to all people around the world, I would recommend one of the following solutions:

1. Use something like "Feb. 7, 2005" which is completely unambiguous.

2. Use something like "2005-02-07" which is not as obvious, but I doubt that anyone has trouble with it.

I tend to use the first form when I have no strict format restrictions (eg., within some text) and the second form when the first one is not convenient (eg., in filenames). The extra advantage you get from the second form when using it in filenames is that the alphabetical sorting is equal to the chronological one.
