comment Customer is “deeply disappointed” in software because of one bug. How to reply?
Maybe explain sometime the economics of software to your customer? You could put 100 people on the project for a year his software would contain a lot less bugs but still not be bug free, but would cost 10 Million dollar.

comment Is there anything inherently bad about mixing paradigms in an application?
@Dan Pantry do you mean procedural (using function and procedures) in a non-oop way rather than functional as in "the functional programming paradigm" ?

comment Why would programmers ignore ISO standards?
I'm not familiar with Oracle, but when using SQL Server or MySQL I too of course use their respective date datatypes when storing dates. But when writing queries with dates, they both recognize yyyymmdd very well where it's hit or miss when you use a locale date.
