  1. I believe my microwave is programmed in C. I threw in a Healthy Choice
    chicken alfredo, with carrots and broccoli medley, seven minutes ago,
    hit cook '5','0','0' and in the half light, mistakenly hit cook again.
    Nothing happened. So I hit cook, 5, 0, 0, and then 'start' like a guy
    who wants to eat.

    It goes past five minutes and down to 4:49 before I say nay. I'm
    uncertain whether that's a bad thing that my electronics did exactly
    what it was told. EC

    Try putting leading zeroes on your cooking time and see if you end up
    with octal time.

    I can't think of how I'd tell it were octal. I hit 'cook', '0','1','0',
    'start', and it seemed to go for ten seconds. Any sequence I've touched
    with 'clock' has resulted in error. EC
