in reply to DateTime and hour 0

I can't replicate the problem here. How about simplifying the algorithm instead?

sub minutes_before { my $minutes_b4=shift; my $month=shift; my $day=shift; my $hour=shift; my $minute=shift; # Lets find n minutes before! my $datetime=DateTime->new( year => 2005, month => month_to_num($month), day => $day, hour => $hour, minute => $minute, second => 00 ); $datetime->subtract( minutes => $minutes_b4 ); $ready=1; return @MINBEFORE = ( num_to_month( $datetime->month ), $datetime->day, $datetime->hour, $datetime->minute ); }

    Thanks That seems to work better, Im just trying to zero-pad the day and num_to_month( $datetime->month ) isnt returning anything. But I get the idea. Thanks again.
      Zero-padding is best done with printf or sprintf. I don't know where num_to_month is coming from (something you wrote?) but why not just use $datetime->month_name?

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
