I've spent the weekend figuring out how to print dates in ancient Roman format with Java.

@yrabbit Yes! Except for February in bissextile years. :)

@yrabbit Bissextile February dates now displaying correctly. :)

@yrabbit "Hodie est ante diem quintum (v) Kalendas Iunias anno Domini
MMXIX"

@papa apparently I did not understand this Latin phrase😉

@yrabbit Non sudore! (No sweat)
Iunias = June, to the first day of which Romans would now be counting down.
I probably threw you off by crowing about February dates.
