Legacy of Zune: My First LY366 Bug

Following my own advice, I’ve added a new standard test case to my quiver: checking to make sure that December 31 works on leap years.

Last week, I encountered a date range with a maximum of one year; you enter a start date and an end date, and the two cannot be more than a year apart. January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009 passed. But that’s no longer enough. And sure enough, January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 failed as being longer than a single year.

It could have gone undiscovered until late in 2011 when actual users began entering that range of dates. And it would have, if not for the legacy of Zune.

    A blogger following their own advice, must be a first !

    Nice catch though

    A blogger following his/her own advice isn’t that odd; after all, the advice is often what the blogger was going to do anyway.

    Someone else following a blogger’s advice; now, that is unprecedented.
