Anyone Here Speak Binary?

On Friday, I reviewed a contract that contained the phrase: "the date of commencement shall be 01101101". After a quick chuckle and flash back to the special enrichment classes I attended in elementary school, I thought I'd be able to figure out whether the first "0" or one of the first two "1"s was extraneous by context. Haha! The contact was signed on Oct 26, 2000, and standard practice in our industry would allow either Nov. 1 or Jan 1. to make perfect sense as the commencement date. Gah.
