      Hey, Zsuzsi! Thanks for stopping by :)
      Yes, I learnt this right after I posted the strip on facebook. In my opinion, the year-month-day system makes more sense, especially if want to keep your computer files sorted out chronologically.

    Maybe because I grew up with it, but I like the American way. I can more easily remember when in the year I did something rather than when I did something in a month and thus like having the month first.
