Time for more leap’d years

#Time #leapd #years

Inability to properly program dates continued to afflict

Maybe we need a new programming language in which it’s
impossible to forget about timezones, leap years, or Thursday.

“Today, the 1st of March, is the start of a new tax year
here and my brother wanted to pull the last years worth
of transactions from a financial institution to declare
his taxes. Of course the real WTF is that they only allow up to 12 months.”
I am not able rightly to apprehend the
confusion of ideas that could provoke such an error’d.

“Good to know that I’m up to date as of 422 years ago!”
