time shifting

(programming)
A technique used to work around problems due to the Year 2000 and the "millennium bug". Time shifting involves translating date fields in a database back by a fixed number of years to avoid year 2000 problems with the database management system.

Typically dates are shifted back 28 years so that the occurrence of leap years and days of the week match with the actual year.
