Broken: Store hours

Andrew Rollason writes from London:

I was just about to pick up some groceries from the Marks and Spencer store down the street.

The website has a decent online store finder, but unfortunately their opening hours are shown as a decimal.


The correct link is:

This happens with the time-datatype fields in some databases. They are stored as floating point numbers, so if you don't correctly translate them, you get amusing results like this. =)

Well it's better than what I'm getting on that site:-

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'CInt'

/stores/inc/store.class.asp, line 64

That VBscript runtime error is embedded in the code of the page.

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

I think it means your browser doesn't support Visual Basic (mine doesn't and I get the same error). You sort of have to wonder why they don't replace '800a000d' with something like

'this page only works in IE 4.0 or later in Microslosht Windows'. Probably a good technical reason... no clue what. The link posted above by Jouet seems to be the javascript version and should work everywhere (including IE in windows).

Hit refresh and the page should come up.

The problem with the first link is the embeded br tag in the middle of it.
