I really like that stitched faux leather mat under the MacBook. I’m not sure who makes that, but if anybody has an idea, I’d be curious to know.

Reminder to America:

It’s 14/3 in the rest of the world and creating novelty days like Star Wars day, Mario day and Pi Day doesn’t mean we are all going to adopt your backwards MMDDYY calendar system.

Whilst you’re there get with the program and convert to the metric system. You already have metric money.

Looks like it could be a simple table mat or possibly bath mat. I see several that look like that on Amazon by searching for those terms. Actually try a search there for leather desk mat. Plenty of options & colors.

Not really the rest of the world. MMDDYYYY also has the nice attribute that it actually follows conventional (largest-to-smallest) numeric place-value rules in the common case you omit the year.

No wonder Trump wanted to buy Greenland!

big to small only works when the day is smaller than the month, so for one whole day of January and so on.

It doesn't bother me if they use it internally, its just every bloody movie trailer and advert published in the UK will say 'in cinemas March Twenty Five' rather than 'In cinemas Twenty Fifth of March' and it drives me nuts.

I'm talking about place value as in digits progressively further to the left signify multiples of the ones on the right. In the case of months-days it's not exactly multiples but practically it's the same – digits to the right change fastest, and if you sort the items alphabetical order (using 01 etc. for single digits) they come out in chronological order as well.

The sorting issue mainly has an impact when working with purely numeric dates on computers and in software though, and I can see just getting used to right-to-left with dates since left-to-right is arbitrary anyway. (Though I've lived in Europe for nearly 10 years and haven't managed myself.)
