Last week, I changed unvoluntarily the actuals computer's date from 1996 to
2096. As a result, none of the Windows 95 apps installed on my computer
wanted to work : Norton was keeping finding rare viruses in every part of
the hard disk, Robohelp was impossible to launch, etc.. : the nightmare !
Until I found out that the source of all my problems was the false date,
2096. After that, the developers of my company revealed that the 32-bit
programs were planed to waork until... 2037.
