Shorten All Month Names to 3 Letters

One thing that I believe strongly is that QAers should strive to avoid bugs whenever they can, rather than just finding them later on.  Every bug that can be avoided saves time all around.

Now, lots of people make mistakes when typing out month names.  So I have a solution!

All month names should be shortened
to just three letters
to save time,
assist in txting,
and avoid spelling mistakes.
  • January becomes Jan
  • February becomes Feb
  • March becomes Mar
  • and so on
Except for May.  May should be lengthened to Maytober.  May has had it good for too long now, and consequently must pay.
