in thread Epoch Day Question. Also, EzDate vs DateTime

The reason I want an epoch date is for normalizing.

Dec 31 1999 and Jan 1 2000 are just one day away, so there data should appear as neighbors on the graph, or statistics analysis, or whatever.

Changing a date into an epoch day seemed to me the simplest way to do this. Each day gets a unique integer, and neighbor days are always neighbors... just works.
