    I remember celebrating 1000000000. The seconds, where do they go?

    Up yours and your stupid decimal notation.

    The next time we hit all 1s (in binary), it'll be the end of the world, aka Mon Jan 18 19:14:07 2038 PST.

    This post and its subsequent comments needs subtitles, or at least director's commentary.

      Time on unix is counted internally as the number of seconds from Jan 1st 1970. It will overflow 32 bits on the aforementioned date in 2038.

      Better, no?
