    Yesterday I noticed that my last three published Hubs in Letterpile are showing published on dates of 12/31/69.
    Wow, that means they're really old. Even before the Internet.
    What's up with that?

        The dates are still funky today (Sunday). I guess no one is paying attention over the weekend. It would make a great article on time travel. Hah hah!

      There's a technical reason for that, I've forgotten what it was. I do know that it has happened to thousands of other websites over the years. No big deal. big_smile

        Maybe it's related to Y2K.

          You nailed it. Same sort of thing. Has to do with default start dates, counters, rollovers, and so forth. Believe it or not, this article is on topic: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/gps-mini-y … 29583.html

    I have an article on LevelSkip that I wrote last week showing that date. How did I manage to write about a Nintendo Switch game before Pong was even released?

      Oh, good! Well maybe not. But at least I'm not the only one who is a time traveler. Mmmm. Pong. I liked Space Invaders. Maybe it's their fault.
