What's the error on the picture?

I just played with F1GP when I realised something interesting. Almost forgot it, but now sorted the photos from my mobile. Check the screenshot. I'd bet the author was superstitious

Mr Geoff C - an example of lazy programming indeed

I think he can be excused for this coding error, nice find though!

Great game too.

If we're talking about the possibilities in F1GP-ED, then this can be declared as a fact

Still it's a ql ware, that's right.

I don't get it. He purposely blocked Thursday the 12th?

Course he did. Everyone knows Thursday the 12th is seven years bad luck.

Well, judging from the picture, there are two options.

If all buttons are default red, and go gray when blocked, he would allow no day-of-month values above 13, but as we can see he allows day-of-month=13.

If all buttons are default gray, and go red when blocked, he would allow for example the weekday to be +'ed to make the date Friday the 13th August, 2010.

Whatever it is that makes the programmer superstitious, it's not shown in this screenshot.
