    This is my description of the ticket I fixed today, about a user who had a problem running our software with the system language set to Turkish:



    This stems from a Java problem associated specifically with the Turkish language. When using the Turkish language, Java's string.toLowerCase() function changes a capital 'I' to a 'latin small letter dotless I,' unicode character 0131, which looks like this: ı, and is apparently utilized in Turkish.

    The problem is noted here: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6208680

    The toLowerCase() function is used in loading interfaces, all of which end in API, which is translated to 'apı' instead of 'api,' resulting in a failure to load various <Application Name> interfaces.

    The constructor in the <Class Name> has been modified to specify the English language when converting API names to lowercase.



    cliffs: my software broke because the fucking Turks don't dot their I's

    Timezone bugs offend me in the same way. Get on EST, losers.

    Pff. TimeZone problems are easy to work out. Every application should track time in GMT (or UTC, whatever you want to call it), and do the conversion to local time only for display.

    I shouldn't have to bother. California needs to quit being lazy and get the fuck up at a reasonable hour.

    I love DST. I love it even more now that it applies for an extra month of the year.

    I could just get up earlier, I suppose, but this way everyone else gets up earlier too.
