* Warning - Technical crap to follow *
It turns out that certain functions of Windows NT/2000 read a number such as "08" as an octal. This is really interesting since "08" is not a valid octal number.
Nor is it an accident that I discovered this problem on 05-08-02.
August 8th, 2008 is going to fail spectacularly. Luckily I will be long gone for that.
More importantly, I will be likely brought in at an exorbitant rate to fix the problem.
Computers can be pretty cool, sometimes.
* End geekness *
