No it isn't. It's from september to August.

Mind, I never claimed the database is well designed.

Everything, and I really mean everything except one table, is done using surrogate keys. Including many that doesn't need it.
Just one table is done using a natural key, that isn't.

Surrogate keys are a safe bet though. They're never plain wrong even if they're not necessarily the best choice. But it can get ridiculous.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated. - Jeff Ello
