comment Selecting an appropriate design for Month/Date Selection
@Graham If anything, I'd rather make a separate post for the calendar part. In the worst case, I'm thinking about just using two combo boxes to handle that part (But suggestions for alternatives are most welcome). Design architecture / data structure is the bigger stumble for me and I have a strong feeling that my question won't get answered in ux stackexchange. Plus, the programmer's stackexchange mod moved the question here, so there's a strong chance that this question belongs in this site.

@LarsKristensen Yes that sounds pretty close to what I want.

comment Selecting an appropriate design for Month/Date Selection
@Blam That is just a quick and dirty example I photoshopped. I removed the days for that purpose as well. Just imagine that the March 1st begins on first column. But I'm open for any better suggestions.

comment Selecting an appropriate design for Month/Date Selection
@Blam That was my impression as well (hence, why I mentioned it seemed like a strange requirement), but I was told not to necessarily link the dates user may set with actual holidays. If the user wants to only shut off the machine on every May 8th every year, he/she would be able to do so.

comment Selecting an appropriate design for Month/Date Selection
@LarsKristensen Because a normal calendar control with a year included gives the user an impression that the scheduler only runs on that particular year/month/date when in fact it needs to run every month/date. Seems like an unintuitive UI design to me.

comment Why aren't young programmers interested in mainframes?
If businesses paid me good money, and they were willing to train a programmer who had no exposure to mainframes, then I'd probably take that job.

comment What are some ramifications of open source software turning into closed source software?
I think .NET reflector might be a pretty good example of this.

comment How does Jump Point Search algorithm work and why is it so efficient?
By manually timing them with a timer. Human errors might indicate that im off by maybe few seconds or more but there is no way that it took as long as the times mentioned in the applet. Maybe it is referring to something else or it is a bug.
