It is now 03:14 UTC on 19 January 2018. Twenty years from now, POSIX and POSIX-based timestamps, which have more-or-less been counting seconds since 1970, will reach 2^31 and thus overflow signed 32-bit integers. Since all sorts of forward-looking date arithmetic abounds, it is inevitable that there are still active applications that will mishandle this. Twenty years out is an interesting point when more of those seams might start to show, and left unpatched, that would only increase as we approach 2038. It's much like Y2K, but in binary… and with seconds.

So keep your eyes peeled in the near future for anything suddenly thinking it'll somehow be December 1901 in the slightly-more-distant future. You have some insight into just why that'll be happening.

Trigentennial
Thirty. Three-zero. Yes, today is the trigentennial anniversary of my birth, which means I'm now 30 years old.  Three whole decades.  It's yet another big number  to wrap my head around , though in this case, I've had a few years' worth of mental preparatio...

2018
Okay, real talk: The concept of twenty-eighteen is just boggling me.  It kind of has for a while, and it really  is now that it's here. As I've noted in the past, I tend to take the onset of even-numbered years more in stride and with a more generally posit...

Welp.
Hmmm… Apparently I had aimed  at the outset of this year to improve my fitness, be more diligent about housekeeping, and make more intentful connections with friends.  And, well, a lot of that sure sounds familiar… because it's a lot of the same goal-orient...

Ugh, a nearly 23-year streak of not having to vomit comes to an end.

This afternoon, I earned my 2,000,000th experience point in #PokémonGo, bringing me to Level 30.

Fully one-fourth of that progress has been in the four weeks since +Lambec Music Camp​ finished up, as I've found that this game has profoundly helped me to stay active and keep my mind from idling, while my work has kept me busier this summer. (Though the recent introduction of legendaries certainly helped as well!) Somehow, in that time, this game has become an incredibly relaxing and valuable part of each day, whether I can only play on my commutes, or whether I have time to take slightly more circuitous routes to my destinations. Despite the stressors in my life, my #MentalHealth is in good condition, thanks in no small part to this game.

I've not generally been one to harbor emotional connections to games or gaming, but I'm not ashamed that these are a notable exception. I don't know how long they'll last, but in the meantime, here's to finding fun in the little things any way you can.
