Very informative article. I've only ever run up against this issue when dealing with age, funny enough. It does seem like a hard problem, but I think I fall with him on the "start doing it right" side. Time stuff has to change by 2038 anyways...

It already did.

sizeof(time_t) == 8 on my machine.

Not by that much. We'll just be using 64 bit.
