We're hitting the limit of 32-bit numbers IIRC (for date & time representation - again).What's the 2038 bug?
Basically sounds exactly like the y2k bug. Probably just needs some minor adjustments for most systems I assume...We're hitting the limit of 32-bit numbers IIRC (for date & time representation - again).
EDIT: after a quick calculation: this limit is reached when using signed integers, 32 bits should otherwise last until 2106. So I guess that some systems will make it, and others won't. Many languages don't bother to offer unsigned integers. 😶
(the sign takes 1 bit, that leaves 31 bits, 2^31 seconds is about 68 years, and the reference is in 1970).
The systems using signed integers will think they're suddenly back in 1902.
Sigh I miss her. Wonder if she lurks on the site now? Anyway after getting insulted twice with swear words that tells you this site needs better moderation. Eye come back.I came across this and it reminded me of someone who used to be here
