[IP] Strange Date

>From the Microsoft Year 2000 Readiness Disclosure and Resource Center:

"The machine's BIOS program does not automatically update the century
during the POST routine....Windows 95 and Windows 3.x/MS-DOS will set the
date to January 4, 1980, the first valid date for the operating system. To
update the century register, reset the date in Control Panel or use the
DATE command in MS-DOS. The machine's BIOS and operating system should then
maintain the date properly."
