Unix Millennium bug – Doomsday in 30 years!

“I just wanted to remind everyone that Saturday, January 19th 2008 will mark the beginning of the 30-year countdown to the Y2K38 bug, when Unix time will overflow 32 bits. Some 30-year loan calculation software might start having problems with this over the weekend.”

In short we will now have 30 years to try and avoid the hype that was Y2K! No planes falling from skies and no stock exchange melt downs! You woke up hung over to shit just as you did any other new years only you were a year older!

Instead of leaving it too late or leaving it to chance, i intend re-mortgaging on the run up to christmas of 2037, ya never can be too careful
