Do Programmers Have A Problem With Math?

It's not like this is Boolean Algebra, after all.

Seems that many Playstation 3's had a little problem over the weekend, coming up with an oh-so-descriptive error of "8001050F". On Monday.


Apparently, some dim bulb programmer screwed up the leap year calculation to make the consoles think it was February 29th. So when the Playstation network said "No, it's March 1st", they shut down in protest.

It's the Y2K bug all over again. Well, sorta.
