....BUT, unless I'm missing something very obvious, Scott's system does not automatically identify Leap Years. This is left to the performer to calculate them self, before the correct date for February or January can be used. I Would find it useful if he had detailed his method for remembering the Leap Years (if that is how he does it).
I have noticed that, if the first number of the last two digits in the year is even (including 0), then a 0, 4 or 8 as the last numeber equals a leap year. Similarly, if the first number of the last two digits in the year is odd, then a 2 or 6 as the last number equals a leap year. This works very well, but having to make the calculations only slows up the system. STILL, I think Day One is excellent and doesn't, actually, require a lot of work to learn.

You also need to remember that century years, e.g. 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2000 are only leap years if the full year is divisible by 400 without remainder.
I.e., 1600 and 2000 were leap years, but 1700, 1800, and 1900 were not. Mike

Michael,
Thanks for the reply. Speed Dating is next on my list I'm purely using the system to add a little extra spice to my Numerology readings, so the 1900s is as far back as I need to go.

I find this is the simplest way to test for leap years:
1. Is YY even? If so ... 2. Is half of YY also even? If the answer to both is yes, it is a leap year (though remember the additional rule for 00). E.g. 68 and 76 are leap years, 66, 71 and 74 are not. Mike

Well I decided to buy Day One today and read through the posts. Just wanted to correct a trivia error typo posted earlier.
George Washington was born on February 11, 1731 (not 1732) according to the Julian calendar. When the Gregorian calendar was adopted his birthday became February 22, 1732, a year and 11 days later. February 11 1731, Julian was Thursday. February 22 1732 Gregorian was Friday. So George was born on two different days. An interesting story when revealing days of the week.

How long would it take a senior with average math skills but possibly higher than average IQ, to learn this? Days? time per day?

This sounds very cool.
