By the year 10,000 A.D, all computer time and software with a 4 digit encoding will be incapable of processing and keeping track of this date, which may lead to some complications trying to store and retrive data beyond this point. This should also be added to the timeline. Source here and here.

I don't think there will be any windows users by 10.000 AD. Or atleast those who remember what "windows" means...

Maybe so, but regardless I still think it'll be a nice addition to the timeline.

Yes, as an obvious joke but one that is appreciated.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

No computers in existence today will be around in 8000 years.

No, I really think this should be on the timeline

No computers in existence today will be around in 8000 years.

And no human alive today will be around millions, billions or even trillions of years from now (unless you're immortal). But yet they're predictions on the timeline that are that ahead, such as the sun destroying all the inner planets including Earth. We won't be around 5 billion years from now to see that but the prediction is still on there. Same goes for this prediction. You're right that no computer today will still be in use over 7 thousand years from now, but so what?

All in all, the final desicion goes to wjfox. If he wants to add this to the timeline great, but if not that's ok. I just wanted to share this prediction with y'all along with my 2 others I've posted.

Don't be daft. Any computer built to last that long, or built around that time, will have an appropriate clock, so it's utterly pointless.

And as I told you I agree with you on that, but so what? 5 billion years from now we'll likely have the technology to move a whole planet from danger including Earth or simply move to a different planet altogether, so I'm not getting your point.

Well, this year 10,000 'problem' is going to be far less of an issue than the "devastation" that was caused by the Y2K bug. If the deadline were 3 years from today, we'd probably have few complications patching everything important.

We can't exactly say the same about the Sun destroying the Earth. It may be far away, but that's not comparably trivial. Even if everyone moves to a different planet (or we move our planet itself), it's still at least noteworthy  from a historic point of view.


If you're wrong, how would you know it?

Well, even though I think this should be on here, I can see y'all don't want it.
