I'm trying to convert my date and time to a better format so I can compare it to a time and date 36 hours from now. Then I plan to compare these two so I can see which date is earlier.

My problem is that I can't just use the typical methods because the code is mixing my day and month.

Here's my code:

PHP Code:
$orig$v_CurrentRecordD['day'].",  ".$v_CurrentRecordD['time']; //MM/DD/YYYY, HH:MM
$conv date('m/d/Y H:i'strtotime($orig));
$daycutoff date('m/d/Y H:i'strtotime("+36 hours"));
echo 
$orig."-".$conv."-".$daycutoff." <br />"
Here are my results:

Help, anyone?

Thanks.
