I wouldn't say "fast approaching". The seconds don't tick faster than before... ;-)

only when represented as integer, the 'binary' time will be 1001001100101100000001011010010.

the real big epoch event is in the year 2038

during that year the binary time will count up to reach


and the 32 bit integer assigned will reach its maximum decimal value of 2147483648, then the next count is 0000000000000000000000000000000

fun for embedded systems.....

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
