I thought it was pretty clear that the author was writing
this just for himself. As he's the only user, why not
change his perspective? Like I said, apply the principle
of laziness in the most efficient manner. :grin:
As for forcing users to use R to stand for Thursday,
schools (well, tertiary, not secondary) across the country
do it already. It's not exactly a sudden change. It
generates a more consistent user interface (all days are
one char). If you want to use multiple-char days, why
not just go to all 2-char or all 3char?
On a grand scale, putting the complexity into the program
rather than in the interface is a good thing (from a user
persective, at least). Yet would you truly paint all
problems with the same brush?
