      I don’t know why they use the Julian date on this one form.  It’s just a way of life at this point…  I guess they use it in another format on one of the other forms we get – forgot about that one.  That one’s even more of a pain (2 digit year, a letter representing 0, 1, 2, or 3, and two more digits – 06a23 would be 06023 or the 23rd day of 2006).  I don’t see this one near as often as I see the other one.


      Oh, the fun we have!

      I find it fascinating that you'd get a form with Julian dates.  (And, yes, all for jobs from home thingies -- and REALLY know about correcting other people's boo-boos. Russ should tell you about his time doing data entry for the Edutainment Catalog. While he didn't process as many names off the phone logs as some -- HIS had no mistakes.)

      I work for a company that has a contract with TMHP (Texas Medicaid) and I enter Medicaid claims.  We have several forms that we have to work with and they each have dates.  One of the forms uses a Julian date but the others use regular dates.  I have to use the most recent date of the valid forms so I have to be able to compare the dates.  This would be the simplified explanation…  The challenge comes in when I have to correct the crazy stuff that the other operators enter!


      It really sounds a lot more interesting than it really is!  It’s actually quite boring.  I just do it because I can work from home with a really flexible schedule and that works with my schedule right now (kids, doctors, etc.).  I’m flattered that you’re so interested!  Thanks!
