Why is 2038-01-18 semantically meaningful to GTD users?
@maiki from my own experience I'd say ISO date format is often immediately recognised by wider population, including non tech people.
I routinely use it alongside UK date format at work and few people question it, if they do they still recognise it as a date but are just curious as to why its in that format (I tell them its to make automatically sorting dates easier on such things as computer directory listings such as collections of backups..)
@maiki oh! didn't click your link since it wasn't clickbait, I see you're learning taskwarrior :P
@cstanhope I agree, sadly.
@maiki I don't know what GTD is, but for a system using Unix timestamps internally, that is suspiciously close to the highest date you can represent with a signed 32bit integer:
$ perl -e 'print scalar(gmtime(0x7fffffff))'
Tue Jan 19 03:14:07 2038
So, 2038-01-18 is the last full day that many Unix-derived implementations can represent.
@maiki that's my birthday 🤡 If I live that long 😆 hopefully as a half cyborg 💪⚡️
@snowdusk_ hey buddy! How's it going? ^_^
@maiki I'm good thank u except for my moody stomach 🤮🤮🤮
