Y2^11 Crisis

Y2^11 Crisis

Consider the year 2048; that’s 2 to the 11th power. It’s a rollover of twelve digits: 11111111111 to 100000000000. If Y2K was supposed to be a rollover problem, then what about Y2^11?

2048 is 35 years from now. I’ll be 90 by then. It sounds worth waiting for, even if nothing happens, like with Y2K.
