    If your traveling down the road in a four wheel banana, and your left wing falls off, how many pancakes would it take to rebuild a doghouse?

    Two and a half windows.

    Here is my guess.

    Lawnsite is on a unix based server. Unix based code bases all of there time on the number of seconds after January 1, 1970. This is called the Unix Epoch. When people do not enter a date for their birthday - it probaly registers that as 0 -- or one second before the epoch -- which would be December 31, 1969.

    The code needs to be reworked so that this is seen as an empty data value and not as a zero data value.

    There was a bug with the date calculation when the date was prior to the Unix Epoch (Jan 1 1970). I have implemented a workaround for this, so the proper birthday is now shown.
