Bad day for date formats

Thursday 5 May 2005

My task at work for today involves making date formats localizable, and getting our use of date formats more consistent. I realized that today is a very bad day to be doing this work, because it is 05/05/05. If I transpose two of the components by accident, how would I know?

Sounds like an excuse to take the afternoon off to me. I give you permission.

Take an afternoon off? Nonsense. You should do it all blind, to prove how l33t you are.

Or alternatively, change the date on your testing computer ;).
