Amazing Alerts

What is so special about Tuesday, January 19, 2038, that 3 activators have already alerted their activations on this date? Absolutely amazing how far ahead some people are planning! I am usually happy when I can decide about a summit on the evening before leaving.

Just curious…

It’s one of the end-stop dates activations end up on if the date is entered incorrectly…

In reply to OE5EEP:

It’s when Unix time reaches b01111111111111111111111111111111 or $7FFFFFFF

At this point time stops advancing for the 32bit world and we start de-evoling!

The first time I saw this played on OGWT I had to check my sister hadn’t mixed some special mushrooms into my food :wink:

Correct, just tested the system with an alert for 2050. It ended up on the given date (now deleted).
