A guy from the future?? The hell did I just read??
John was a named used on some bulletin boards around 2000 and 2001, where he claimed to be a time traveller and came back in time for a specific computer IBN5100 which was only available at that period of time according to him.
He introduced himself as Timetravel_0 but around 2001 he changed it to john titor. John said he is an American soldier from 2036 who has assign to the government time travel project and has been purposely sent back in time to retrieve IBN5100 computer which is needed to solve some debugging problem of the 2038 UNIX problem.
So in order to prove that is he from the future he makes some prediction regarding the future:
- A World War in 2015 killed nearly 3 billion people in a nuclear blast.
- A hold of nuclear weapons by the Iran force which leads to war.
- Dividing of the United States in 5 different states.
- Civil unrest surrounding the president election.
- A start of world war 3 in 2015.
- Cern a newly develop scientific firm will develop its first time machine and open up a black hole in the planet.
- Olympics winner of 2004.
Some of its prediction are not true and some are but at point of time apart from its predictions there was one thing which many people emphasised upon and that is why IBN5100 at his time period?? There should be much more advance computers than IBN5100 so why..??
John mentions that the 5100 had some sort of inbuilt ability to translate computer languages that was unknown or unpublished before 2036. The computer would then have been used back in his time to translate or fix broken computer systems. He said that, it is known that the 5100 series is capable of reading all the IBM code written before the widespread use of APL and Basic. Unfortunately, there are none left that anyone can find on my world line.
And in the year 2001 he said that he has got the IBN5100 and will be going back to his own timeline.
So according to some john titor was a fake guy and other though he was true. But who am I to decide? That it’s up to you all. So read and decide whether he is real or not..!!
I am awaiting your response..!!
