An untold number of people have tried to predict the Lord's return by using elaborate time tables.
Most date setters do not realize mankind has not kept an unwavering record of time.
Anyone wanting to chart for example 100 BC to 2000 AD would have contend with the fact 46 BC was 445 days long, there was no year 0 BC, and in 1582 we switched from Julian Years (360 days) to Gregorian (365 days).

His calculations in 234 indicted there were still two centuries left. (Annales de Saint Florent de Saumur, et de Vendme, Halphen Recueil d'annales angevines, p.58 n.2, 116 n.6.) Note that, in typical capstone style, Halphen does not include the note, with its millennial consciousness in the text of his edition, nor even in a footnote to that year, but appended to a footnote for another year, and explained away as a mistake.
