From some other Forum:
The ARM SYSCON CPU that is used to power up the front panel of the ps3, that is responsible for doing things like sleep mode, eject, RTC etc. Is an old batch that Sony picked up from the shelf like other manufacturers that has that calendar year bug regarding feburary 29th on certain periods. Causing the ps3 system clock and the real time clock to desync, messing up security measures like Digital Rights management software and sometimes games that relies on clocks for whatever reason. As well as signing up to the playstation network... This CPU is always on even when your PS3 isn't plugged in.
This problem is also happening with various of test Ps3 models, particulary the ones that has the emotion engine cpu/gpu for ps2 dev.
This is the one of the same type of CPUs that is powering up mobile devices like zune and blackberries, they have been affected with this bug, so they done some software patches. A syscon update can also fix this problem
The Slims ps3s aren't affected because they use a newer up to date revision on the syscon cpu that fixes this bug.
A quick way to fix this is to remove the RTC battery for at least 5-10 min and plug it back in, you will see the date and time reset, and voila...

So not Sony's fault at all, rather a chip error, otherwise Research in Motion and HTC are in trouble as well

But for some reason people manage to make a hash of working out when leap years are. Even though it isn't exactly complex and the most obvious mistake only becomes an issue in 2100.

Totally agreed, especially the Ninjas vs Pirates bit. I'm just waiting for Bravo to do a Deadliest Warrior episode with ninjas and pirates.

LOL somabc, and just to be different PIRATES FTW, all they do is get on a boat and the ninja's are beat. Ninjas wont let their pajamas/ninja suites get wet as they shrink

Another vote for Pirates, being that 90% of all Pirates hung for piracy stated their birth places as Bristol.
England vs Japan!

That was just probably where the pirates (navy) press ganged them (enlisted them)
