It took a minute to realize that January 2nd, 1999 is not between 01/01/0000 and 01/01/1999. This is one of the reasons why some "experts" are expecting bugs to crop up at apparently random intervals, for several months/years, when unsuspected relationships occur in the software and data. I, naively, thought that I had a few more months to work out the bugs. -- Paul Ransom, P. Eng.
