Last semester my wife came home from her computer class and asked, “What’s the significance of January 19, 2038?” She seemed somewhat startled when I knew the answer off the top of my head. Alas, where’s the Computer Geek edition of Trivial Pursuit?


My only issue with the whole matter is the Wikipedia is stating that computers will interpret binary zeroes as January 1, 1901, which doesn’t make sense. It would actually be interpreted as January 1, 1970. Which leaves just one question, where is that Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young Déjà vu CD, eh, LP?
