ACK!  That poor DateRanges module was never suppose to be let out into
the wild.

Just edit the module:


        $CGI->popup_menu(
            -name       => "${name}_year",
            -default    => $year,
            -values     => [reverse ($cur_year-8..$cur_year) ],
        );

That -8 is likely what you want to mess with.
