Leap Year Domains

So when do we renew 2012 ? lol

A person (domain) born on February 29 may be called a "leapling" or "leaper"[10]. In common years they usually celebrate their birthdays on 28 February or 1 March.

For legal purposes, their legal birthdays (reg date) depend on how different laws count time intervals. In Taiwan, for example, the legal birthday (reg date) of a leapling is 28 February in common years, so a Taiwanese leapling born (regged) on February 29, 1980 would have legally reached 18 years old on February 28, 1998.

In some situations, March 1 is used as the birthday (reg date) in a non-leap year since it then is the day just after February 28.

There are many instances in children's literature where a person's (domains) claim to be only a quarter of their actual age turns out to be based on counting their leap-year birthdays. A similar device is used in the plot of Gilbert and Sullivan's 1879 comic opera The Pirates of Penzance: As a child, Frederic was apprenticed to a band of pirates until the age of 21. Now, having passed his 21st year, he leaves the pirate band and falls in love. However, it turns out that the pirate indenture says that his apprenticeship does not end until his 21st birthday, and since he was born on February 29, that day will not arrive until he is in his eighties, and so he must leave his fiancée and return to the pirates. Of course, it all turns out happily in the end.
