The Time Machine
A strange thing happened to my friend and work colleague Jill this afternoon. She was putting some information into someone's Outlook Calendar, when all of a sudden her screen started flickering and the calendar dates started going back in time. Just like in HG Wells' novel.
It was fascinating to watch. I thought it would stop around 2001. But it kept going backwards. When it got to the year of her birth, Jill looked closely to see if she could find out what day she was born on. But the calendar flicked by too quickly. Here's a photo of one of the last dates we saw before she clicked on Windows' task manager. I would have liked it to keep going to see what would happen when it got to year zero.
