in thread 'use strict' is not Perl

If your date format is the american style mm-dd-yy and you pass VB a string with mm > 12 it will not complain like it should. It just silently assumes you mean dd-mm-yy.

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
