New years Eve

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

New years Eve

Post by Duncan »

Those that went through the new years eve of 1999 into the year of 2000 thought it would be the end of the world ,as computers and their programs were ill equipped to handle the confusion of y2k.

They were all wrong , the confusion is going to start this new year when computers cannot understand why the first two numbers are repeated.

It's definitely going to be the end of the world this time , so make sure you have withdrawn all your money from the ATM and spent it before that happens.

Actually, 19 January 2038 is considered the next Y2K type of problem:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem
The Year 2038 problem (Y2038) relates to representing time in many digital systems as the number of seconds passed since 00:00:00 UTC on 1 January 1970 and storing it as a signed 32-bit binary integer. Such implementations cannot encode times after 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038. Just like the Y2K problem, the Year 2038 problem is caused by insufficient capacity of the chosen storage unit.

Had some fun / frustration last night trying to explain new years eve to my girl , then I made the mistake of asking why she needs to celebrate Chinese New year as she's not Chinese
What's her dead perants going to eat if she doesn't give them food on Chinese New year as expected
I gave up and went back to my drinking.
I'm standing up, so I must be straight.
