Re: Time



fixed

Are you referring to the "end of time" similar to what's going to happen to 32-bit UNiX time in 2039?

I'm not referring to DST in The States.  But, rather, what is the maximum
(latest, whatever) time/date that currently can be recognizing on the System
i?

 

I recently came across this video
(http://www.numberphile.com/videos/unix_time.html) that is about (obviously)
unix time.  The year (2038) mentioned in the video sounded vaguely familiar.

 

So, when does Time stop (on the System i)?  Or loop (time travel?)?
