I had a little laugh today when i checked my ad-aware pro. I had got ad-aware from a promo not too long ago, but anyway i was just examinating the main/home page of the program and noticed the date of the "last event" and was quite shocked and confused….maybe you'll get the same reactionLaugh:

Huh, that's odd.  Most programs revert to January 1st, 1970 rather than the day before.  It has to do with where calenders start on computers--that's the earliest date your computer can work with.

Oh, the site that was :(

Lol, do a search and you have every piece of malware known to man!

 

I don't know, because Steam once did a hardware analysis of my computer and came up with a windows install date of Dec 31 1969 too.

You got Pwnd

Oh? The clock on my machine claims to be able to go as far back as 1930. Clearly I win.

Not really "the earliest computers can work with".  Most computers/programs store the date as a number and dates earlier than that are stored as a negative number of milliseconds before that date and dates after are stored as positive number of milliseconds.

Oooh wait that's Unix time that's 1-1-1970 isn't it?  D'oh. 

@Karen:  Actually NT counts time by 100 nanoseconds, it just tells you in milliseconds.  Unix counts time in seconds.

Oh, the site that was :(

@Locutus – Didn't know that about NT.  Java does it in milliseconds.  System.getCurrentTimeInMillis();

All I ever learned about system time I learned from Wikipedia.  So there's the big possibility I'm completely totally wrong.
