in reply to 2038 bug

You might be interested at looking at Daniel J. Bernstein's implementation of TAI (temps atomique international), a 64-bit representation of time values. It can deal with second, nanosecond or attosecond precision, depending on your requirements.

cr.yp.to/libtai/tai64.html

He has a number of essays about time that are worth reading. It should be noted that djb is considered a controversial character in some circles.
