Telling someone RTFM is just rude and mean. Manipulating dates and times can be confusing for beginners and experienced people alike. I would suggest that when a question asked here causes you to respond with RTFM, don't respond at all. Save yourself the time and trouble and save the person asking the question the grief of being insulted. And Tedd your condescending response caused me to lose respect for you. I'm sure the OP would have been more than thankful to receive the same response without the RTFM. I'll read any response to this, but I won't have anything more to say. This list has been polluted enough lately with nonsense. Incredible.
