Re: Programming a calendar system (WAS: Re: I Should've Been ...)

Sorry, I just found your message with the details of the calendar.

Okay, so we have a system in which a year consists of seventeen months
of 24-26 days and an eighteenth month of 30 days in most years but only
29 in every fourth year.  That's of 456 days in a common year and 455
days in a leap year.  That adds up to a mean year of 455.75 days, not
456.25.  What am I missing?
