Good tip by a good tipster. Thanks.!. Charlie Shipp 02:08, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


A little long for tip of the day - can some of it be moved to an article? --Phil Miller (STATPROF) 11:10, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


Good tip. Added div tags and changed the form of the links to reduce space. Also added category tag. --Don Henderson 22:21, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


Tip Ready. --Frankfry 02:30, 3 June 2009 (UTC)


Changed doc link from PDF to HTML

I changed the link pointing to the documentation, from PDF to HTML. First, it's more seamless in the browser. Second, it takes you directly to the information on the HOLIDAY function (whereas the PDF is the entire language dictionary).--Howles 17:33, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

There's more to it

I think the tip is a bit over-enthusiastic about the HOLIDAY function. The function has its uses, and its limitations (for example, it will generate a Martin Luther King day result for years before that holiday was established, or before MLK was born).--Howles 01:04, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
