My bad. German dates... We write the the day first then the
month and then
Americans seem to read dates as "October 14th, 2013" which is
write numeric dates in such an odd way :D.
Since I realized that is the reason for it I've been much
noticing the location of a person who wrote a date down.
I've chosen to try writing dates using the ISO
Always causes confusion, thus leading people to actually figure
out the numbers. :) Of course programmers don't have an issue
with it. Sadly, it can't be shortened:
13-10-14 or 10-14
I'm also ok with 2013/10/14 even though ISO isn't.
