New Calendar

Today's news about a proposal for a new calendar got me thinking about all the code I've written to deal with dates and times. Time zones, leap year, daylight savings (which is different in Europe and a couple states, btw) have all driven me mad over the years. I wonder how much money has been wasted writing and maintaining this mundane code. I'm not sure I think switching the calendar globally is the right thing, but I sure wouldn't mind some consistency within a single organization. Sigh.
