It makes since when you explained it the way you did, I understand it a little better now. "After" meaning after midnight of that day... Well, I knew something was up when I did a search for "after 2008-08-31 and got 4 hits... so there were 4 new members that joined today - after midnight. Their time or ours? :
So after I realized that there were results for AFTER "today's date" I had two theories. One was that somewhere in the world it was already September, and for those members, did they sign up in August? Not to them they didnt. Then my next idea was that the after date was included in the results. Which seemed more logical especially considering that (I imagine) most of our members arent a day ahead of the majority of us... Time Zone wise. Especially since today's number was four all by itself. So the twelve o'clock thing makes so much more sense. My initial search was for new members who joined "after" July 31, 2008, and that returned 304 hits. Then when I did a search for people who joined after Aug 31, 2008 and it returned 4 results, I came up with the GMT theory... and I was thinking simple math would make the answer 300.... BUT when I did a search for AFTER 2008-07-31 and BEFORE 2008-09-01 it still returned an answer of 304... that blew that guess out of the water. That's when I realized that whatever date you typed in the after box was included in the results.
If I made any sense.... Thinking fast here and fingers cant keep up...
And most of all, I now know how the search function works. Not that I think I would need to get that specific in the future, but at least I know just in case. It's kind of ironic though, when I was looking up the answer to the KatKwiz, before I typed in my date... I wondered if today would be included or not. I questioned myself before I even did it, but reasoned that it wouldnt. That's what I get. Just proves the "assumption" rule!
So Lee, did you ever find your niece on the list? Is that what prompted today's question? I'm glad the KatKwiz asked that today. It is always nice to learn something new.
PS - thanks again for the points!! And I'm glad to read about all your fun at yesterday's KatKlik. I loved the pictures, you guys look like you had a blast!
Oh yeah, and I like the tongue-twister: after doesnt mean after after all.... try saying that times real fast in the dark
