Anybody else notice that the ASCII database provided had strange Time and Duration values? For example, for the Time I have "14:75" and Duration I have "11h65m". Is there another way of telling time that would allow more than 60 minutes in an hour?
Anybody else writing methods to validate the field values? Or am I just wasting time doing it.

I'd have to say that you're wasting time validating what Sun gave you. As for 14:35 (or whatever the time was, the one-eyed moose doesn't show me the message I'm replying to WHILE I'm replying) - that translates to 2:35 PM. 02:35 translates to 2:35 AM.

oh, now that I can read your original message, I see you probably already knew the military time thing - but you were asking specifically about the :75 part... sorry. Anyhow, I didn't validate the fields, I didn't see that as part of the assignment.
