Subject: sorting and merging files

I've gotten into a bit of a bind on sorting.  A little explanation:

I've been working at keeping the ~/org directory of three machines
syncronized through a master repo on a USB flash drive.  I've made a bit of
progress, and for simple updates, it is basically working.  I still don't
grok merging conflicts.  I've finally ended up with a file with duplicates
of entries, so I thought of concatenating files, then sorting these
entries.  Each entry has a date (made from a remember template), so sorting
by date makes sense.

Ideally, one should be able to do this, and then sort with C-u C-u C-c^.
I've tried this several times, and gotten bitten almost every time.  I guess
the dates can only be sorted as text.  And duplicates are not removed.  I
read the manual, but little help was gotten there.

What do I need to know to make sorting work, and what I might be doing
wrong?

Thanks for previous suggestions.

Alan
