Maybe Rob wasn't good at math in school, or maybe he was fed some wrong info, or maybe it's just a typo; but the maximun number of leap years in a 30 year period isn't five. In fact, it's far from it. The problem is not as simple as dividing 30 by 4 however. You have to visualize it. Make year 1 the first leap year, and successive leap years will occure in years 5,9,13,17,21,25, and 29, making a total of 8. That probably represents some kind of universal formula, but heck, I'm a musician... Danny Imig
