[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
[atcroft]: james28909: What about October 5, 1582?
[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
