Problem #142

January 2 of this year was unusual in that it forms a palindrome (it reads the same backwards and forwards) when written numerically: 01/02/2010 (ignoring the slashes). Note that we are writing the month first and the day second and always using two digits for each. We will call such a date a palindromic date.
