Had one hit Tuesday in remediated (fixed) software. Not a biggie, just enough to slow things down a bit. The ones that scare me are the ones that don't show up until the Third week of January or the first quarter close...

Of course. Bugs have been showing up in "finished" software since software was invented. Why, companies have whole software maintenance departments to handle this situation. I imagine these departments are introducing date bugs as well as fixing them. And I expect date bugs to continue cropping up long after we're all dead of old age.
