I have to presume the calendar's designer had two "Ex's"...one born on 23 November and one born on 23 December. That would explain it. : )

Just think about the poor person whose birthday fell on November 23rd. They would have missed out entirely! I like the suggested fix, but wonder if the QA department was fired for missing this obvious mistake.

Some weeks are that way, in that they have a second Monday, which for quite a few months was the day that the weekend emergency problems all had to be fixed. Or like Garfield (the cat) used to say,"I know there is a Monday out there just waiting for me". Sometimes he is right.

It's nice that he was willing to let you make the fix without voiding the warranty. Perhaps, he'd even go so far as to allow the mod to be released open source under a Creative Commons license.
