Character error 

Matthew Paul speculates that if he put $100 in the bank then traveled 100 years into the future, "the interest alone would make you a millionaire." You'd have to deposit much more than $100 if you expected to get rich off the interest. No bank offers an interest rate that would yield $1 million of interest from $100, even if you waited 100 years before withdrawing it.

In initial shots, the time machine's computer is a Commodore 64 with a 1541 floppy disk drive, which is also generates the screens and provides voice synthesis. Later on, it inexplicably changes into a Commodore Amiga 2000, complete with separate keyboard, which was previously in Nick's living room.
