Microsoft codes leap year bug into Exchange 2007

Dave Harding


I never understand this stuff about leap years. Type in the date, add 1 in the next column. Result, correct date. Though I have no idea whether the medieval dates are actually "correct" because the calendar changes makes this an interesting challenge of definitions I expect.

No such excuse for confusion in the recent past ( say 200 years ) I would have thought.

Friday 28 February 1360 Saturday 29 February 1360

Wednesday 28 February 1900 Thursday 1 March 1900

Monday 28 February 2000 Tuesday 29 February 2000

No, wait. OOo is being incompatible with MS Office.

What we need is some kind of ISO standard for this ...

... or maybe two, or three.
