Sometimes you can get hints of what OS and/or software was on the 
originating machine - if you don't set the date, what does your machine 
default to?

Besides the posts that had no time-stamp, or faulty/corrupted ones,. . .
Was John Titor on this list?

Slysoft is GONE, partially but not completely replaced, . . .
One version of ANYDVD that I use requires any date prior to a certain 
one; that machine is set for October 14, 1988.  1988 (a leap year) is the 
most recent year that has days-of-week and dates the same as 2016. 
Non-leapyears have much easier calendar substitutions.
