After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

December 4th of the Year of Our Lord 292,277,026,596

That is when the Unix date field will reach its limit and it will all come crashing down, or start over. happy smile

btw that is about 7,900,000,000 years from now.

So the Y292,277,026K will be real at one point. I'm almost certain that, by then, we would have abandoned Unix at that point—but you never know. This mother was invented 43 years ago and it's still the best, most solid operating system ever created. Good enough to survive the entire Universe according to the Big Rip theory, which predicts everything will be over when the Universe reaches an infinite scale 20 billion years from now.

Can you imagine a world without Unix?  Microsoft can, according to inside sources this was in a recent memo.  "I want everyone on Windows 8 by the end of the year or the bunny gets it."

Of course if you believe that, you have watched way too much South Park. tongue smile
