    SubjectRe: time_t size: The year 2038 bug Summary:
    > BTW. What is the _exact_ datetime when Unix's freak ?

    I'm not sure about "freak", but:

    #include <time.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main() {
    time_t t = (time_t) 0x7fffffff;
    return 0;

    gives me Mon Jan 18 22:14:07 2038. I guess I was a little surprised
    to find that negative time_t's do map to pre-epoch values. just
    turning time_t unsigned would give us 2106. personally, I'd like to
    see a higher-resolution time function, something like 64b of ns
    since the epoch. and this time, let's make the epoch Linus's b-day ;)
