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.

Personally, I think the year-month-day makes more sense, especially when sorting your computer files. :) Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
