  • Are we running into a big problem in 30 years?!?

    30 human years is a long time in computer years. How many systems do you think will still be running on 32 bit processors in that time? Even your hair dryer will have 64 bits by then.

    • I think that is exactly the same way of thinking all the guys had that said a two digit year is enough, who in hell will use our software in 2000?

      Anyway, I don't really believe it to be a problem by then but I can claim to be the one who first mentioned the 2034 Bug. Maybe I should buy the domain?
  • Not 30 years -- it starts in 4, when all the 30 year mortgages roll past the epoch end.
