Nothing that you can do. I just needed to pound my head against a virtual wall for a while. I had two consoles running. They were at 85% and 35%. I was grazing on the net and noticed that my computers time was off by an hour. I let AtomTime reset it.
But did I check first? Oh no. Not me, I am too smart for that. The year was 2000. So once it reset my wu's were all past due and were terminated.

I need to stop looking at the damn clock.

    Some microsoft certificates don't like to be installed on a backdated computer either. Found that out the hard way after installing XP with the wrong year and then tried accessing a site using .net. Format/re-install....AGAIN. :D

    I use to try doing that to cheat on time expiring products. Worked once on one old program, but others if you set the date foward a year, then set it back to the normal year were smart enough to know what you did and expire the next time you use it.
