Happy New Year, it’s 2010!…oops, 2011

Happy New Year! It’s a brand new 2011 and this same problem is happening to me just like last year and the year before and before before then. The problem is, I mistype the year wrongly.

For example, today is 11th January 2011 and I’ll accidentally type in 11th January 2010. Imagine I’m entering the wrong date for my SQL lines. Bet it’ll misquery and produce the odd results. I say it’s a habit thingy. I’m so used to the previous year that I will, without a blink of an eye, type out 2010 instantaneously. I suppose that’s fine. I wouldn’t want to think about entering wrong dates especially the year at critical moments like during a financial transaction.

It’ll take a while for me to familiarise with this young 2011, say within a month I reckon. But by early next year, I’ll be facing the same thing again. Sigh.
