What is that?  2010, the 25th month, 15th day?  I need a time machine?  :P

No no, it's clearly suppose to mean the 26th day of the 15th month of the year 2210. But yes, you're still going to need a time machine. :P

Happy Birthday! It's a pilot you've probably already seen!

It's shorthand that sensibly follows the long form.  October 26th, 2015.  Month, date, year.  Sensible.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Until you go somewhere that says "the 26th of October, 2015"...which not few places/peoples do.

No one writes it like that in this century.  That's the sort of anachronistic form that should include "in the year of our Lord" somewhere.  Scoff scoff.

Um, yes. That is exactly what 26/10/2015 is. And much of the world still does say the 26th of October. (In fact, it's not-uncommon here in the PNW part of the US.) It's how a lot of legal documents are written, too :)

If they do it in legalese, you *know* it's bad, clunky English.  Of course, the "of" awkwardly used to reattach the severed date to the month is really all the proof one needs of how wrong it is.  ;)

This is the case of "The Standard that Isn't".

November's 26th day in 2015 ... or ... The 26th day of November in 2015. They're both clumsy, and if one uses something clumsy long enough, it wears a path,  and both sides are arguing from their well-worn paths. I've even heard of people refusing to use the number for the month -- month's aren't numbers. Instead of "26/10/2015" they might insist of "26-Nov-2015", or even "2015-Nov-26".

However, the latter has the advantage of being in order of magnitude. Days are sub-elements of months, and months in turn are sub-elements of years. But even that's just a preference for a style or purpose, consider "Four-score and seven years ago..." and "Four and twenty blackbirds..."

When I saved any reports on the computer, I always had the date in the file name with the year/month/day order. That way, all the files were in chronological order when I had to go looking for them. however, when I write the date down when signing a meal waiver or something, I always use month/day/year.

Wow, those are even worse, and I can't say I've ever seen either used with regularity.  The unnecessary possessive, the redundancy of calling it a day just in case someone might've thought it was November's 26th cake because it's such a fat month...

That does not change the fact that it is, in fact, not archaic nor is it uncommon usage. (One, obviously, follows the other. If it's not uncommon, it by definition cannot be archaic, which means no longer used or not used enough to be considered.)

Hogwash.  We use anachronistic terms and phrases all the time.  Every time we dial a number on a cellphone, or hang it up for that matter.  Some people use them without even knowing how or why they're wrong. 

Heck, there are those who would argue that the imperial system of measurements is an anachronism, and look how much mileage that gets.
