Tell the meeting organizer that she is going to be a little late, please

This is what popped up from Outlook:

Given that the meeting occurred over 148450 days ago, it is fair to say that she is gonna be a little late.

It feels like a Steven Wright joke or something. You know, like "I went into a restaurant that said they served breakfast anytime, so I ordered pancakes in the Renaissance...".

Kind of a cool Outlook feature, too!

Ok, just kidding.

But never forget the year 1601 -- it is the smallest legal year in the SYSTEMTIME struct and it is a big part of the CRT's date story too. Though I am betting on the SYSTEMTIME thing, and a [nearly?] empty struct being passed to GetDateFormat.

Someone please tell the meeting organizer that she missed the meeting. I really hope they gave up and rescheduled....
