Time travel is the concept of moving backwards and/or forwards to different points in time, in a manner analogous to moving through space and different from the normal "flow" of time to an earthbound observer. Although time travel has been a plot device in fiction since the 19th century, and one-way travel into the future has been repeatedly proven as easily possible today. It is also now accepted that time travel to the past, while difficult, certainly does not violate the laws of our mathematics and physics. Any technological device, whether fictional or real, that is used to achieve time travel is known as a time machine.
The greatest scientific development in the history of mankind is now underway and leading to discoveries that will change our world and reality in ways difficult to comprehend. We invite you to join us in the largest effort to network time control information and interests from around the world.

Given mankind innate talent for screwing things up I pray this guy's a crank.

Since you would be in separate universe you would not interact with yourself.

Time will tell, I would like to think that we have the technology, Dr. Michio Kaku thinks it's possible.
who says a machine is needed?

it assumes time is a "direction", it could quite possibly be more of a state of being, which would then make my aformentioned argument a pointless point.

IMO if it were possible it would be massively flawed as you'd not only have to pin point the exact date you wish to travel to linearly, you would also have to calculate the position of the earth in the solar system, the position of the solar system in the Milky Way and the position of the galaxy within the universe to avoid ending up in the middle of space.
