Re: InstantDB: Dec 31, 2000 problem with IDB (versions 3.21 and 3.25)


I've been unable to reproduce this. I tried the code you sent with both the
system date set to 31 Dec 2000 and with the current date. In both cases,
your program ran without any problems. Is there some other detail that I've
missed out?
