This will be the first of two such "significant" events in 2001, the second being 01:46:39 UTC on 2001-09-09, when the clock will read 999999999 (and then of course "roll over" to 1000000000 one second later). Use the Time Zone Converter to help you figure out when this will occur in your area, or read up on other
critical dates (such as when the 32-bit signed UNIX clock overflows in 2038)."
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will
surprise you with their ingenuity.
