samizdat... getting the information out in spite of Big Brother... it's a big handle to step into, not sure I can ever live up to the courage of those who practiced it in the CCCP, but I take it on to honor them, and to do what I can in my own little way.

What 'samizdat' means

note: I used to use the handle 'dwildesnl' when I worked for the Labs.

[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)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
