I love this comment from the rfc:

    /* NT keeps time in FILETIME format which is 100ns ticks since
       Jan 1, 1601. UUIDs use time in 100ns ticks since Oct 15, 1582.
       The difference is 17 Days in Oct + 30 (Nov) + 31 (Dec)
       + 18 years and 5 leap days. */

Gotta love those Microsoft "standards", dontcha?
