Changing my default date format

For years I’ve written dates using the One True Date Format, YYYY-MM-DD, but that may be about to change.

I’m thinking of changing it to YYYY.MM.DD.

I tend to prefix everything with a date and the dotted notation results in a narrower date (when using proportional fonts) and makes it easiest to scan. 2019.01.09” looks like a single text object, while 2019-01-09” looks like three things, hyphenated. It’s hard to explain, but given its space-saving and list-scanning properties, I’m going to try the dotted notation for a while.
