according to Moore's law the last CPU upgrade
occurs in 2017 - after which they can start
fixing the other kernel bugs without having
to worry about CPU upgrades coming along.

The next one is like 2034 or so when those folks
using 32-bit architecturs eat it for time_t structs.

Then there's the 10K bug where they have to like
dig up all the like really old geezers who like patched
for the y2K bug by like shifting to a four character

extensions so that you can get to the data you need in the
