As someone who knows Arabic, you are correct. As someone who has never used an Arabic keyboard for sorting, I would assume that sorting follows the language, which in this case is right to left. So DD-MM-YYYY would sort in the order of 78-56-1234 since the numbers are left to right, but higher precedence from right number to left.
Yes. I take your point. My issue is with a recent employer who insisted on storing dates as integers or strings or even decimals in his database. I can't remember seeing a single DateTime or Date object. See where I'm coming from?

All in all we were amazed at the amount of attractions in this quiet eastern part of our province of Flevoland in the Netherlands, there's even an artificial ice skating rink "Flevonice" (not opened yet for skating, but there are other attractions).
If you have kids, the pancake restaurant "Hans&Grietje" is recommended too, but watch out for the witch, the tables can behave strangely too
Have you considered a pet-safe? Goedzo has a collar with batteries and can go into the garden unsupervised - if he comes near the fence, the collar will emit a beeping and if he tries to cross it, it will give a small shock (like electrical fences do).
So, he can go out and play - just not outside the garden. Too many cars outside the garden to take that risk.
