    Remember to update your 32 bit systems people.

    You've got 18 years. The time passes suprising fast. Drop the Classic ASP and and ancient compiled C programs.

    64 bit the lot, or expect a world of hurt.

    "Linux originally used a 64-bit time_t for 64-bit architectures only; the pure 32-bit ABI was not changed due to backward compatibility.[15] Starting with version 5.6, 64-bit time_t is supported on 32-bit architectures, too. This was done primarily for the sake of embedded Linux systems.[16 "

    Mmmhmmm Linux, yuuup.

    I honestly can't see if *nix virtual 32-bit software and OSs, which may still be useful and around on smaller scalable clusters, will be drastically affected.

    But wow...."MySQL database's built-in functions like UNIX_TIMESTAMP() will return 0 after 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038"

    @ReasonEnduring thanks for the heads up.
