Sorry, I'm kinda dense these days. What does that mean? I know that 
chaging my locale changes the default date format and the default 
currency used. Befor I changed my locale, I had USD currency and 
MM/DD/YY date formats. Changing that gives me the correct currency but I 
don't know how to change the default date format.

Hmmm.. Yesterday I got permission errors. It's fine now. But I don't see 
the answer to my question there either. :-(
