Very interesting issue regarding Unix time


Recommended Posts

As long as software is updated to work with 64-bit timestamps by then [and, after three decades, it sure as hell had better be], there won't be any major problem.

But that doesn't mean we can't still jump on the Y2K38 wagon.


At the moment, IPv4 is a bit of a more pressing issue, and probably equally unknown.

Put simply: we're running out of IP addresses.




Correction, we're running out of IPv4 addresses and have trillions and trillions of IPv6 addresses available.

Some ISP's are already letting users switch to IPv6 (Comcast is one of them) and there are a lot of web servers already using IPv6.

Put simply: everything is okay.
