18:24 mwn3d_phone So here's something curious...
18:25 mwn3d_phone I was thinking of a task to show the epoch of a datetime library
18:25 mwn3d_phone I tried it out in java using java.util.Date
18:26 mwn3d_phone I made a new Date object and set its millisecond representation to 0
18:26 mwn3d_phone The documentation leads me to believe that should represent jan 1 1970
18:26 mwn3d_phone But it prints as dec 31 1969 at 7PM eastern
18:27 mwn3d_phone No wait
18:27 mwn3d_phone It makes sense now......timezones
18:27 mwn3d_phone Whew
18:28 mwn3d_phone I was about to have a little time crisis
18:32 Hypftier which would also not be uncommon with Java's time and date API
18:44 mikemol Nothing wrong with a little time crisis...I used to dump whole rolls of quarters into that game with my brother. :)
18:45 mikemol Which reminds me, I've got to email a bunch of people about plans for this wednesday.

19:59 mwn3d_phone Btw: [[show the epoch]]

20:35 mwn3d_phone mikemol: not sure if this could help the money situation at all (or how popular it is with our users) but maybe its worth a shot: http://www.readability.com/publishers/
