When i signed up on the 23rd of October. The start date is supposed to be on Jan 3050 not Dec 3049. Sometimes it keeps changing back and forth. I naturally started in Jan 3050 game time. Is there a way this stop and bring it to Jan 3050 or not. Is it normal for this to happen?

I remember it doing that for the very first country I registered... oh about 5 years ago. Haven't payed any attention to the start dates in a long time so couldn't say if it's a recurring thing, but it's not important as far as I'm concerned.
If I had to guess, it probably has to do with registering the country while the month is shifting, probably does funky things in the database.

Date moving BACK?
never had a complaint like this.
please let me know when you see such a thing.

You've got to remember, time is a relative thing. While you may observe it going back and forth from your point of view it may be acting completely in sequence from an electrons point of view in the SC server.
If you really are uncomfortable with it, I would suggest you relocate to a place in space-time with different gravitational forces acting upon it.

I agree with the Crafty one; time is simply a relative measurement of passage thru a gravtationally distorted space/velocity matrix, (sorry, Newton, but you were wrong!), and is relative to the observer.

I don't know if it's fair to call Newton wrong, he was right in what he observed, he just didn't see the whole picture. Mind you, I expect the same will be said about Einstein/relativity in time.

true; Newton is right as it pertains to medium-sized systems. It is only in the realm of the very large and very small that most older rules of physics do not apply. I stand corrected.

Lol, I wasn't trying to correct you Mac, at all. I just like people to think of things in terms of the knowledge and beliefs at the time.
And theoretical physics is one of my pet topics, strictly on a laymans basis. More discussions of it would be great. I've been trying some newsgroups and forums but they all are too advanced for me, what I have found so far. Graduates and professionals with vast resources.
And then there's physics for dummies...well, title says it all. I need to find a middle ground. I think I've read all the popular quantum physics books published. And I dont have my own linear accelerator... (hmmm, wonder whats in the shed I could use as a particle accelerator...).

Crafty: I am also fascinated with theoretical physics, and quantum theory (in which anything seems possible if you can figure out a good storyline for it )
Btw, there was a young chap about high school age, I think, who made his own private breeder reactor using the radioactive element in smoke detectors as a starting fuel. Hmmm...

Well, I have several quite strong magnets in old motors, and a crude laser in a pointing pen. I may be able to pull a vacuum with the wifes dyson, hmmm, black holes in my shed, like it!
