    If you're doing this to defeat a program's security or licensing scheme, let
    me warn you that there are many ways this could be detected. Inconsistencies
    in different time functions, filesystem times that are way ahead of system
    time, times built into networking protocols (and thus received from remote
    machines), detection of times before other run time, and so on.
