I agree julian date is the way to go... in terms of being a standard, you
just can't beat it.  I'd suggest the whole timestamp look like this:


Where : items on the right are optional (effectively zero if not present) and
<hour> uses a 24 hour clock.  Leading zeroes would be insignificant, in other
words, :6: is the same as :06:

For example, right now it's 2451461:7:45
