In a very ‘Easter-Egg-ish’ post, Grant Richins (a developer on the C# Compiler Team), explains a configuration option of ‘alink.dll’.
_So everybody hopefully knows you can put a star "*" for either of the last 2 version numbers of the AssemblyVersion attribute. ALink will then translate that into the days and minutes since January 1<sup>st</sup>, 2000. Well, here comes the feature: What if you don't like January 1<sup>st</sup> 2000? Well, you can change it._
Personally, this seems of dubious worth, which might explain the lack of documentation, but if this option is useful to you, check out his post for all the details.
