Dynamic list item title based on date created & regional settings?

I have a list of things that doesn't *need* a title.  However, because sharepoint uses Title for links, RSS etc  I tried generating a title in an event handler.   This would work great if I wasn't basing it on a date field: public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(properties.AfterProperties["TestDate"]); properties.AfterProperties["Title"] = dt.ToShortDateString(); base.ItemAdding(properties); } In testing, this sets the title to "8/9/2010" when I selected 8/10/2010 in the date picker.  I figure this is because of the regional settings of my test user.  I can probably correct the title value for 'test user' but that won't fix 'test user in mongolia' who would still see two different values. So What I would like is to have the Title always display the value MyDate in the uesr's locale.  So the field needs to be dynamic not only at edit/update time, but at display time. Does anybody know if this can be accomplished, and more specifically how?

Append an Item to a SP List and NewForm dropdown menu


When Lookup Column on a NewForm.aspx, that was populated from another SP List, does not contain a value in the DropDown menu can it be added/inserted into the source SP List from the NewForm without leaving the NewForm? 

Is there code or example how to insert the Item in the SP List, then refresh/repopulate the Lookup Column's DropDown menu (in the NewForm)?

Or is there a better way to do this add an item both the List and the dropdown without resetting the values already entered in the NewForm?

Removing forms from the List Item Menu with SharePoint Designer

In SharePoint Designer 2010, if one removes one of the default forms (say "EditForm.aspx"), how does he also remove the "Edit" option from the List Item Menu? The default forms are not represented in the "Custom Actions" pane when looking at the form settings page in SharePoint Designer.  The background is that we have created a custom form that is really add, edit and view combined into one.  We need to eliminate two of the pages and only link to the one that is left.
