Hi, how can I round a double to the nearest 0.5 or 0.25 ?

e.g.

rounding to nearest 0.25:

4.08 -> 4
4.19 -> 4.25
5.55 -> 5.50
6.78 -> 6.75
6.98 -> 7

rounding to nearest 0.50:

4.08 -> 4
4.19 -> 4
5.55 -> 5.50
6.78 -> 7
6.98 -> 7

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

(that's for nearest .25) - change to 2.0 for nearest .5
