Sorry. I missed the sarcasm in your original email. There are still people
today who defend that as being a good way to convert dates.

        Al,

        That was my point.  At the time this was unleashed on the RPGII
        community, people said: 'Hey, that's pretty slick.  I can flip/flop
a
        date format in a single instruction.'

        Then the underlying hardware changed and suddenly something 'slick'
        became expensive.  Expensive in both the cost of computing
performance
        but also expensive in removing it.
