Re: Mail problems, not microsoft

	This is because of the localtime() call.

	I had to fix one of my programs that I didn't notice it
was doing this until after the day went past.

	It was writing it's log files that get parsed nightly
as 1000101 instead of 000101.

	man localtime says:
--
       tm_year
              The number of years since 1900.
