We're now exactly halfway between y2k and the 32-bit Unix time overflow.
I don't know what any of those words mean but I assume this means my computer is gonna stop working at midnight so thanks for the heads up kim beans
Oh thanks now it all makes sense (it does not)
Oh wait no it does (for real) thanks ben lubar
@grufwub y2k38 is gonna be fun to explain to people who remember y2k but don't know how computers do math
@grufwub Not quite, that happens on January 10 at 1:37:04 UTC (assuming no leap seconds between then and now).
@fluffy i know just figured a pedantic status might not quite be as poignant (: also what's +-a number of days in the scheme of 68 years haha
@grufwub yeah mostly I'm surprised at how close to the beginning of the year the Y2K38 problem happens, for some reason I had it in my head it happens in September
"Time overflow" — got me thinking.
again a 2k year kinda bug
@grufwub the year just started can u not rn
@trashyfins i know I'm sorry 😆
