January 1, 1601??? The update was probably preparing for the revolt in London against Queen Elizabeth led by Robert, Earl of Essex. Or, perhaps it was an update required by the British East India Company which was founded the day before. Personally, I was recovering from the smashing New Year's Eve party at the East India Company.
(I know realistically it has something to do with the first day of the Gregorian calendar operating on a 400 year cycle, yada, yada, yada...)
good history.. Walter Raleigh was imprisoned...
- but now it has been modernised! After a restart and a new update being installed I looked again. Now the date has been corrected.
Hmm, some effect of a pending update to be installed? As I said, the 2nd time I've seen that date.
Hmm.. thanks, good memory halasz. Weird it should become at all apparent in practice.
