( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hmmm... I could use this to print a statement like Sorry, I don't do Windows.

It's not that my scripts won't run there; I'm just sick of BG and company.

Update: Aack! Phht!! My first negative post. Sigh...

Update #2: From some comments that I received (and a negative vote), I realize that I should have clarified the above statement. It was meant simply as a joke. While yes, I get tired of the M$ attitude of "It compiles. Ship it!", I am not really an anti-Microsoft fanatic. I'm just tired of dealing with their bugware and having to code for their "embrace and extend" features. As a programmer, I would prefer that standards be adopted, not companies.

If I am asked to code in VB or to develop in VBScript, I'll do it. I just prefer universal standards. Coding something that will only work with one company's products just goes against the grain of what I prefer to do.

That being said, I did appreciate your script and felt it was useful (I voted it ++). I program Perl on both Windows and Linux environments and I can appreciate the need for what you've developed. I'll try to be more careful with my humor in the future :)

Cheers!

    [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....
