in reply to odd or even day?

Check your math. You can use paper and pencil to estimate the current day number according to your scheme, then print $var and see if it's in the right ballpark.

Update: quick sanity check: assume there are 365 days in each year. This is 2006, so there have been about 36 * 365 days:

36 * 365 ~ 10 * 36 * 36
         = 10 * 12 * 12 * 9
         ~ 14400

    This was the reason why I'm using UNIX time to avoid issues such as this. I'm assuming that 'time' provides this, is that correct, I believe so
