lost track of time

This morning, here at the workplace, many people were surprised to see the date and time changed on their PCs.  Mac users were unaffected.  The time said 3 pm, and the year was 2145.  I would have no problem with it being 3 pm right now – I’d be able to take off in a couple more hours – but I’d have mixed feelings about jumping ahead 136 years in the calendar.  It would be nice to have the flying cars and the favorable relations with friendly alien species, but I’d miss my kitty cat.  Unless maybe all the animals advanced with us in time – they’re not PC users, so it’s not clear what their position will be in the space-time continuum.
