My annual reminder: update your copyright to 2008

I have no idea why this bugs me so, but I hate it when I go to a site in March and it still says the previous year's date.  I notice that still says 2007, as does, once you dig down to a copyright, so you could be ahead of these large corporations.  Just a friendly reminder (I don't start really getting annoying for another couple of weeks).

Um.....why not code it serverside to use the system clock?

Some choose to go that way. As for me, I feel that is akin to adjusting the scale rather than losing the weight. There is something about having to actually remember (my Dad is a Presbytarian minister, so I get all Calvinist on occasion - don't take it too seriously).

On the other hand, it does make you wonder why the Microsoft's and IBM's of the world don't take that approach. It is probably questionable from a strictly legal point of view since the copyright would look different than it had if you went back to an archived version.
