The Unix Time “Apocalypse” – visitors from beyond…

Visitor from 1970's

This is not a coincidence.
On the 1st of January 1970, the Unix epoch begins at 00:00:00 UTC.

Wiki: Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing points in time: it is the number of seconds elapsed since midnight UTC on the morning of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is widely used not only on Unix-like operating systems but in many other computing systems. It is not a true encoding of UTC time, but is sufficiently similar to a linear representation of the passage of time that it is frequently mistaken for one. The main complication is that UTC accounts for leap seconds, while Unix time does not.

Of course, that there are problems that lay ahead. The greatest one is called “The Unix Time “Apocalypse” .
The end of Unix Time will occur on January 19, 2038 03:14:07 GMT. On January 19, 2038 03:14:08 GMT all computers that still use 32 bit Unix Time will overflow. This is know as the “Year 2038 problem” and I think that trafic.ro is trying to say something: the end is near!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I’m the first site owner in history to have visitors from 1970’s – even before the Internet was invented (an even before I was born) – and I thank Netbridge for choosing me to see “the light” ๐Ÿ™‚
