LOL, besides 2100 won't be a leap year because it's not divisible by 400. Something to do with that due to the fact that Earth's orbit takes slightly less than 365.25 over the course of four centuries adding a leap day once every four years accumulates an error adds up to around 3 days.
Which resulted in the calendar being 10 days ahead of the equinoxes by 1582, hence the switch to the Gregorian calendar.

But we geeks all know that, right?
