This was too simple...It really couldn't be that simple. It was that simple.

I posted a couple of nights ago that the date on LJ posts was defaulting to the year 2000.

Most of my friends know me and they all know that I'm the last person to go poking around inside a computer to 'figger' things out. Normally I'm so farking intimidated by these goddamned boxes to do something like that!

However...I decided to 'poke around' tonight.
I found the computer's date/time thingabobber and whaddayaknow - the machine was set for 2000.

I changed the year in there, closed up the thingamabobber and came scooting back here to check out my theory.

*hee* The date is reset! ::bounces:: I did it. Me. Moi! Myself and I. Without an anxiety attack or sweaty palms.
go me
Thank all of you who left supportive comments and suggestions.

t_woman your situation must have been something way more complicated than this. I have no idea what would have done that to yours.

chrismm thank you for your offer. Do I get to see you this week-end in Portland?

Yay you! You fixed it yourself! *cheers and waves pompoms*

Yep--I'll be there. I'm spending Saturday night with some long-time friends from Portland (I used to live there), but Sunday is all for you guys. Though I'm thinkin' I might have to break the slash news to my friends, since they were all "we should do dim sum beforehand, and meet up after" and all, and since I'm staying at their house, I can't think of a polite way to say no. *grins* Oh, well, it wouldn't be the freakiest thing they knew about me, as long as we've been friends...

Nope. No plan. LMAO Three chats and nothing. I still think we should all have pink balloons that say 'I (heart) JC' on them tied to our wrists. Hee!

I'm so glad it worked out for you, and congratulations on the bravery to poke around :) and yes, mine was much more complicated, something along the lines of having an evil, virus infested, file hostaging (is that a word?), demon possessed computer that won't do anything I ask it to *kicks old computer*. Therefore I bought a mac and hopefully won't have to deal with half that crap. But I'm glad it you got it figured out :)

I bought a mac
Music to my ears *er* eyes?
It was the little PC loaner that had the wonky date.
(I'm not complaining about the computer, I'm very grateful that my friend was so generous)
But mac's are my first love.

I hope you never have to deal with evil, virus infested, file hostaging again!!!
