Even that isn't necessary. All that's required is that time not
"go backwards". Just booting up and then manually setting the time
will work fine. You don't even have to set it accurately. You
can live in the future, or the past. Just so time never "backs
up" all the tools will work fine. If time "backs up", however,
make can get confused about what got built when, and then you
can have a mess. Trying to live in the past might require using
"touch" to change the dates of things. Living in the future
shouldn't require any work at all.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
