For some of us, this interest is practical. While, personally, I don't
really care one way or the other, I run a MUSH based on the Gundam universe,
and I know how gamers are. They want solid facts. Therfore, I included the
Gregorian calander dates into the the timeline for the MUSH, showing how
Gundam's UC calendar relates to the current.
