    Re: PS3 Leap Year bug

    So has this actually been "fixed", or was it just a "wait until the clock ticks on another day" type thing? In other words, since no update has been released, is the bug still present and waiting to pop up again in the future?
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Yes.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    It hasn't been fixed - as you point out, like the Zune new year bug, it just meant waiting 24 hours.

    Now, the second question is harder - will it happen again? Depends on whether the firmware has any more incorrect assumptions about leap years!

    Re: PS3 Leap Year bug

    I'm no dev, but how hard is it to code for a leap year case? Seriously? Can't be that hard right? And it was the same chip at the heart of the issue (ARM chip).
