Time-handling bug leads to lost time machine

I built a working time machine and sent it back to the year 1500. It was supposed to take some pictures. I was planning on retrieving it from 2007 immediately afterwards. Unfortunately, I messed up the code for the Gregorian calendar year adjustment and now I've lost it! Help!

Been reading comp.protocols.time.ntp recently? This would have been a truly convincing AFD prank if he'd said his RTC got set back to 1500 by a rogue server and nothing works now...
