Looking back at our LSTs and Post-Shows, everyone used the ####/##/## date type until around 2014. That's when ####-##-## started getting used.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"

Mister Charlie told you so.

Not a single thing I can find uses dashes.

To make it even more f'd up, at work when I hand date things I use ".". As in "7.8.20". Well, back when I worked, that is.

Standard yyyy-mm-dd etree taper format!

All those other ways are wrong, because I want my folders and files to be in order.

Correct!  It's all about alphanumeric sorting.  Plus / is not a valid character in a filename.

Year month day with dashes is fine

Year month day with back slashes is for psychopaths, or Europeans
If this is love, I'm never going home..

I find the image files with MM.DD.YY rather ironic.  Or maybe not ironic....me fail English....whatever word fits the thingamadoo I was trying to say.

And my earlier post was total jackassery btw.  As is this one.

i hate slashes and dashes.

it's periods, period.

1997.8.2

for example.

i don't like 0s in there either. 1997.08.02 is wasting perfectly good 0s i could use somewhere else in life.
