Well spotted ... but no, I don't have any super powers (you shall need to ask Huw about those date formats). Although I suppose I could have claimed that I've returned from the future* just to bug you.

For what it's worth, I prefer the 22-Sep-23 style myself; and I may as well mention in passing that xBase - dBase, Foxpro - even Clipper - are very good in handling dates formats of all types ... and PM scheduling programs et al rely on good date routines.

*Actually, I've been there - and believe me, there's not a great deal to look forward to.


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
