If one looks at the Stack Exchange site index list, one can observe that the Sound Design site (which is apparently in beta, by the icon), has a site age of 2012 years and 8 months. (The site creation date, as a timestamp, is -62135596800.)

"2012y8m site age"

If you click the link on the index, it goes correctly to the Sound Design SE, but if you click on the Area 51 link, it's not found. A search of Area 51 turns up only unrelated results as well.

I believe this is because it was (just) upgraded to a SE 2.0 site. While it's impressive that this SE predates the Internet, this should probably still be corrected.

    StackExchange's epoch is 1 A.D? That explains a lot.
