It is a very special feeling to find pages that are dead, that died before Geocities was killed, but with still intact calender scripts showing the current date. Even if the calculation is buggy. Like unwrapping a mummy, and suddenly it opens its eyes.

To have a Javascript put the current date and time on a web page is common web design sickness, because computers show this information in all possible places anyway. But it is a powerful tool to spook web archeologists.
