pibbuR who wonders what comes after 2038

PS: In 2054 we (Norway) will run out of available national id-numbers (birth numbers) DS.

What's the 2038 bug?
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. :D

Basically sounds exactly like the y2k bug. Probably just needs some minor adjustments for most systems I assume...

Couch! Better get used to it. Things like these are never over!
Thank God!

pibbuR who sees this from the perspective of an (admittedly has-been) IT professional.

If you live on the first floor or have someone living above you this rings true. :LOL:
