@DavitMasia I don't know, I find this format to be backwards. I mean I remember what year it is (only time travellers wouldn't!) and same with the month. It is the day I might forget. Having to adopt yyyy-mm-dd just because Americans apparently forget the month more than the day (what's the deal with their mm-dd-yyyy otherwise?) is just unfair to say the least. So why use yyyy etc, except to be sure of being understood by American-made computers?
@Nocta @DavitMasia (Sorry for not replying earlier, it was night in my timezone) What do you mean "alphabetical" date order? Maybe what this guy said (https://cybre.space/@rick_777/100624817153981827), that sorting alphabetically also sorts by date? If so, I still don't see the point since I can always sort by last modified date.
@DavitMasia Used to program Java, ugly brutal language that. Those years I spent a lot of time on google and one typical search was `Java Date`, every time I hit enter I shuddered at the thought that *this time*, there will be some website trying to hook me up with the Java developer of my dreams.
But think about reading the date of a random event: if the first information is the year, you start to have an idea of how far ago it happened (or how close it will be in the future), and then if you need it you can read on to get more precision with the month and day.
@DavitMasia I like the lack of ambiguity in DD-MMM-YYYY but it does have some English imperialism built in.
