I think it's time to end "two thousand one," "two thousand two," and such.  If we don't stop using the long form now we might be stuck with it for a whole century.  I think one decade with that form is enough.

"Twenty-oh-nine" is awkward, so we tolerated the long form, but now, without the "oh" in the middle, we should use the short form.

    I'll end up saying both indiscriminately.

    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

          You know, I will say I do like saying twentyten, it rolls of the tongue better smoother, nicer.  Which makes me feel like that's the way this year is going to be for us; smoother, better, nicer.  So yes, knock of  with the Binary thing!!

          forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

          Now, does it count??
