Chapter 8: The Dating Game

Abstract

The Y2K bug is all but forgotten, and the Unix 2038 bug should be a non-issue (unless you are still using software that was compiled more than 30 years earlier). Date-calculating software in use today should be good to the year 9999, and perhaps beyond. Unless, that is, adjustments have been made to the calendar to accommodate the couple of days discrepancy that will have crept in by then.
