Here's your reminder that DST is ending again this weekend and you will be losing your free hour everyday.  But Wait!!  Congress moved it this year:  It's actually next week!  Yay!  Another week of free hours.  It a good thing Congress is saving us Time and Money, and more than ever before!

"Flag" Fields

by fwhagen Tue, 16 October 2007

I shouldn't be surprised, but I am:  A customer complained to me that the Flag field they wanted to indicate a Yes or No value was failing.  The Yes value was working fine, but No was being returned when they hadn't set anything yet.

I didn't realize that booleans were meant to represent Yes, No, and Maybe.  Silly Programmer, no bits for you.
