Thanks to Mystic and Lachie for their kind words in the latest QBE about my recent tutorial about Rounding.

It's quite a difficult subject, and I myself must admit that it can still be improved.

One of the difficulties of rounding is that most programmers have their own proprietary version of a particular rounding algorithm, and after time, these programmers become convinced that their version of the algorithm works fine. Of course, their algorithm has never been confronted by another programmer.

For years, I myself was using a variation of the Symmetric Arithmetric Method which I developed. It seemed to work fine, and no one ever confronted the method, including the Accounting Dept. "Ignorance is bliss." Years later I realized that it did not work 100%.

Thanks again, friends..... Moneo

Oups, just a little typo in the date... ;) (I've spend three hours last week to remember the number of this year, so I won't bother ^^)
Very cool issue anyway.
