    'Everybody says "Sleep when the baby sleeps"'

    As any parent will tell you, this is impossible: babies only sleep when their parents are awake. The only way around this is to have the grandparents come over, and go to a hotel. This only works with grandparents. Aunts, uncles, cousins, and unrelated baby sitters do not have this magical property.

    Of course, when the parents come back the baby, being well rested, is once again prepared to keep his or her parents awake. And God help those who have twins, triplets, or any other multiples. Then, the babies switch back and forth so they're not sleep-deprived by keeping mom and dad up.

    At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

[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)....
[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....
