This one has been sitting on the burner for at least a week. Does anyone have a reason to keep this? If it isn't worth discussing, its probably not worth keeping.

I don't mind it going, I have no idea what it means.

The idea is to have a sprinkling of dates so that we show historical trends, rather than just mention it when it's a major problem. We used to do the latter and it resulted in the timeline seeming to rapidly develop with events coming out of the blue.

That said I'm not particularly fussed about this one.

To be honest looking through the timeline up to the Technocalypse I can see barely any that we should delete. I find the entries interesting and informative of the early development of OA.

Edit: I'm referring to the tech timeline here as it's the one I'm most familar with.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
