Re: Time



fixed

And as mentioned in an earlier append, the system will recognize dates and
times through the year 9999 if you're using the right formats. Date range
support/recognition is very format (*YMD, *ISO, CYMD, C-epoch, *DTS, etc)
specific.

Time will "loop" at roughly May 10, 2071, 11:56:53. The actual time will
be some fraction of a second into the 53rd second (with the fraction
varying by release level of the system). There is an earlier time that the
system will not IPL after (also release dependent), but if the system is up
and running you have until 2071 (with current MI implementation).

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

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?)?
