This challenge probably has me the most scared out of all the suggestions so far. But I'm a gadget addict. This journey has got to be good for me.

Aim: Regress one year for every day of the challenge, using only technology commercially available in that year.

This means no more Google after day 14, people! Can you still find an encyclopaedia in a library these days? I'll need to camp out in the library to find the instant gratification of knowledge to which I have become accustomed. This challenge will either take place in December or April over my holidays, with the aim of preserving my employment status.

The research so far:
