    Adjusting for leap year in Win 8.1
    « on: March 01, 2020, 08:24:53 PM »
    Since the leap day, my computer is showing the wrong day of the week for the given date. No doubt there's a Windows update to correct this, but I don't connect this computer to the internet. Is there a way to adjust this manually? Or a specific update that I can download with a different computer (Linux)?

    Are you sure?
    What happens if you fix the date by hand?
    Right now it is March 1,2020 here in California. This is a leap year.
    Where are you? What is your time zone? In what country do you live?

    Would your time zone happen to be GMT-4:30?
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

      OK, never mind... it was my watch that was wrong, not the computer. Sorry :)
