Remember the whole Y2K bug thing that everyone thought was a big deal around 2000? And remember how it wasn’t? It seems the real year to worry about is 2038. The issue is fairly technical, involving when storage of 32-bit signed integers which keep track of the seconds passed since Jan 1, 1970 will run out of a space and restart at some date in 1901. Anyways, I’m amused by it, all the moreso because there is a problem but not the one numerology obsessed people thought there was.
