Description exec228 2006-12-11 06:18:12 UTC
how many much times it will be denied by OOo/Calc developers?

7.62 and 12.7 are gun calibres, and not fucking july!
it should be july only when i enter "7/62" or "12/7"!

my locale is russian customised.
my locale date separator is "/", not "."
my locale decimal is ".", not ","

someone ever wondered that windows can have russian locale ",." tweaked to "./" ?!

or you will suggest users "to take out tonsils with autogenous through the ass?"
again and again?

the problem is wide known since ooo1 (so there is no need to describe all
nuances, as stated in bug_writing_guidelines.html), and it still persists in
ooo2 (sought according to pre_submission.html, found it not yet solved, though
actively discussed).

mentionned above pre-search clearly means that i am not a selfish one.

i intentionally repeated this issue, because in all previous issues no solution
is given.

i am currently reinstalling angrily deleted ooo2 just to read .sxw you recommended.

i'll be back here after studying this doc.

p.s.thanks for quick reply. this is the very first constructive answer i could
get from ooo community since ooo1.

Altering summary to remove foul language. The tone of your report is simply not
acceptable. Please try to be more civil in future- thank you.
