I noticed this too, I just didn't bother posting it. I figured someone else already posted such an obvious bug. Looks like my assumption was correct.


No surprise people didn't post here. Most people don't know what a Unix time stamp is. It's the number of seconds since January 1, 1970 (01/01/1970). If my memory serves me, on January 19, 2038 at 03:14:07 it will cease to function due to a 32-bit overflow, and all applications which use it will require migration to 64-bit (or higher).


tapantaola, I'm glad some people out there (other than myself) know something about Unix (or computers in general). Thank you for posting this.
