The 2038 Problem - Code Reliant

“The 2038 problem" relates to an issue with how Unix-based systems store dates and timestamps.

The core of the issue is that a 32-bit variable can only store integers up to 2147483647. Once the system clock ticks past this at 03:14:07 UTC on January 19, 2038, it will integer to overflow, setting its value to −(231) , wreaking havoc from there.

Y2K all over again?
