Mina, why does the World always end in 2038 in all your fictitious examples?

because i can't imagine a world past 2038.

i can't believe Linux maintainers actually got over their bullshit and accepted that Linux is the platform that 32 bit embedded systems use, and fixed their shit: lkml.org/lkml/2020/1/29/355?an

@meena all them alix and soekris boxes happily serving as BSD firewall boxes in small businesses without being touched for the past 10 years eh

@n whellll

32 bit FreeBSD on i386 not so much :blob_grimace:

any other 32 bit platform is fine tho

@meena
Making the unsafe assumption that we survive 2038, 2106 is going to be interesting in the extreme

@yaaps in the extreme weather, for instance......

@meena
Sometime between 2023 and 2030, we find out whether we've irreversibly borked the planet for human life. Then, we've got close to 100 years before the climate actually borks us. So a 2038 computing crisis gives 10-12 years for infrastructure to decay after finding out we're borked, while a 2106 computing crisis happens with just enough time left before we're finally borked to bork any late departures
